The Trinidad Pimento is also known as the Trinidad 'seasoning pepper'. It is the most popular cooking pepper on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. It turns from light green to dark red or orange-red. The elongated peppers can get over 3 inches in length and about 1/2 inch in diameter.

Seasoning peppers are used extensively when making the famous Trinidad 'green' seasoning. This is a marinade which varies from family to family but almost always includes fresh green herbs such culantro/cilantro/parsley/coriander, thyme, onion, garlic, scotch bonnets and of course lots of seasoning peppers. The bulk of the green herbs and often semi-ripe seasoning peppers give the marinade its distinctive green colour as well as its unique aromatic yet fruity aroma and flavour. The marinade is used on grilled meats and vegetables or as a base for soups and stews.

Fruits are best when semi ripe, i.e. when they have a mix of green and yellow/orange/red colouring. This is when they have the best flavour.

Heat level: heatless to mild with the occasional hot one. These chillies are similar to Pimiento de Padron in that there is the occasional odd hot one. Though, generally they generally mild to heatless. Therefore, it is advisable to try a small amount first. The riper the chilli the hotter it can be; although, this is not always the case and there are often more exceptions to the rule. Learn about Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) here.
