- The sweet pimento is used for stuffing olives
- The pimiento was originally hand cut into small pieces and hand stuffed into olives to complement the strong flavor of the olive
- This method was very time intensive so a mechanical process was developed where the pimiento was shot via hydraulic pump through the olive, pitting the olive in the process
- Peppers grow green turning to red
