Combination packs, also known as medleys, have proven to be popular with consumers over the last few years. More products are being sold in such a way like multi-colored potatoes, bell peppers, and carrots. Consumers can now find a medley of hot peppers in stores. Cabo Diablo Hot Pepper Medley is a new product from Central Coast growers Jacobs Farm Del Cabo. The pack includes a variety of hot peppers that range in colors and includes habaneros, Brazilian starfish, serranos, and others.
Meant as more of a sample pack for consumers, Jacobs Farm Del Cabo Marketing Manager Kyla Oberman said in a release, “This new pack provides those home chefs an ideal mix of medium-to-hot peppers to use in their culinary creations.” According to a 2017 consumer trend survey, 48% of US consumers prepare spicy foods at home and 43% order on the ‘hot’ side of the menu when dining out.
