A pimento pepper tree bears the red, ripe, and ready-to-pick seasoning ingredient at the backyard of a resident’s home in Petit Bourg. This pepper magically flavours any dish and is a very popular seasoning found in the kitchens of many cooks in Trinidad and Tobago. Pimento peppers are sold for as much as $2.00 for one even though it is easy to plant. Having these peppers in your very own kitchen garden would not only make cooking much easier but it would be one less item on your grocery list to worry about.
