Lion Chili is one of the most important ingredients in the cuisine of Sierra Leone and all of West Africa. People love the spiciness and delicate aroma of the deep red peppers. Many agricultural products in Sierra Leone thrive in the rainy season, but not the Lion Chili. It is harvested when the hot sun is burning in the dry season.
By purchasing our Lion Chili, you are supporting smallholder farmers who use the land between the trees in agroforestry systems to grow a variety of sustainable products.
