This type of piquante pepper was first discovered in early 1993 and introduced to market later that same decade. The name is derived from "Pepper" and "dew".
Although the pepper is sometimes described as a cross between a pepper and a tomato, this description is not botanically accurate, and refers only to the resemblance in color and size between Peppadew and cherry tomatoes.
The fruit is processed for removal of the seeds and reduction of the heat of the pepper to more pleasant levels. It is then pickled and bottled.
