Welcome to


My name is Francisco “Paco” Brignoni and I’m the founder of Fire Fruits International LLC.​

We are a Florida based Hot Sauce makers passionate about mixing exotic tropical fruits with habaneros peppers and spices perfecting the art of "Sweet and Hot".  We make our Hot Sauce in small batches with fresh, all natural ingredients, and taste test every batch.  


The Turning Point!

 One night I was invited to a party and I gave a bottle of my Tamarind –

FireFruits Artisanal Hot Sauce

Habanero hot sauce to the house owner. That night a stranger came up to me and said ‘Are you the sweet and sour hot sauce guy’ I laugh but agree to him and right after he told me; ‘If one day you sale your sweet and sour hot sauce it will make you famous’. That night when I arrived to my home I kind of started thinking that this guy’s maybe was right. That was the first time I really started thinking seriously about it.


The Beginning!

My beautiful mother took me to a Mexican restaurant when I was 10 years old where I tried hot sauce for the first time. 35 years later, I had tasted more than 300 hot sauces and owned more than 100 in my collection. I have not met a hot sauce I didn't like, but have always felt there was something missing in the hot sauce industry.

I began making hot sauce as a way of escaping from behind my desk and computer. I bought organic habanero seeds, organic soil, organic pesticide and patiently waited fro my garden to bloom. 

With great quality habaneros in my yard and easy access to exotic tropical fruits and spices, the sky was the limit. After using my family and friends as guinea pigs for more than a year, Fire Fruits International was born. And also th art of achieving the perfect balance between flavor and heat by combining exotic fruits with habaneros. 


The balance was so perfect, that within a few months 2 of our hot sauces had earned the most prestigious award in the hot sauce industry, The Scovie Awards, and in March, 2017 we were presented with this award at the Fiery Food Show in Albuquerque New Mexico while we showcased our exotic artisanal collection.  


I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our family, friends and clients for each comment, constructive criticism and all the continuous support provided. It has been a great adventure so far, and I look forward to continuing to make much more hot and sweet history together. 

Love you always,


Perfecting the Art of

Sweet & Hot
