Neapolitan Papaccella pepper
NEAPOLITAN PAPACCELLA
The Neapolitan papaccella has small and flattened fruits which are very sweet and fleshy. It is the sweetness that characterizes this heirloom pepper; the flavor is very strong and fresh. The papaccella is wider than it is long, averaging between 2 - 4 inches wide and half as tall.

The Neapolitan papaccella can be eaten fresh, grilled, pan-fried or baked, stuffed with tuna, salty anchovies, olives, breadcrumbs, raisins, pine nut, piennolo tomatoes and capers. The papaccella pickled preserved is the main ingredient of “rinforzo’s salad”, a typical course of the Neapolitan gastronomy during the Christmas festivities.
