É uma pimenta que oferece um sabor quente, suave e feminino. Encontramos um casamento entre canela, anis verde, alcaçuz e chocolate. Tem um ligeiro tempero (muito mais fraco que uma pimenta preta) e um sabor quente intenso.
Nós gostamos de usá-lo para ralar, argamassar e ferver.
Não é recomendável colocá-lo em um moinho de pimenta com o risco de quebrá-lo.
É bom saber: ao contrário de outros pimentões, ele tolera muito bem o calor prolongado.
