Sunset to make noise at Fresh Summit with Kaboom! peppers

Mastronardi Produce,  Kingsville, Ontario, plans to make a bang! at the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit expo with two new peppers.

The company, which markets under the Sunset brand, will be showcasing Kaboom! black jalapenos and premium Wild Wonders peppers

Kaboom! is jucier, with a fuller flavor, than the traditional green jalapeno, and is making its North American debut at Fresh Summit, according to a news release.

“Kaboom! packs a taste explosion, rather than the pure heat of traditional green jalapenos,” Roger Mooking, Sunset’s culinary director, said in the release. “They are the perfect complement to salads and nachos, and their dark color really stands out.”

The Wild Wonders have a “super-sweet flavor and an alluring” shape, according to the release, and packages contain a mix of red, yellow, orange and brown peppers. With no bitter aftertaste, they work with a variety of dishes, and have few seeds, Mooking said in the release.

The peppers, as well as Mastronardi Produce’s Aloha and Shazam!, will be on display at booth No. 4385.
