Peppadew is the brand name of sweet piquanté peppers, grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa. First discovered in 1993 and introduced into the market a few years later, it's name is derived from "Pepper" and "dew." The flavor is fairly sweet with a small hint of heat.

Currently Yancey's offers two flavors of cheese utilizing Peppadew as an ingredient. Jalapeno & Peppadew™ Cheddar and Peppadew Cheddar both have a distinct sweetness flavor stemming from the Peppadew, with the Jalapeno giving a little more heat for that extra bite if you prefer.
