The Cubanelle pepper is quite the charming light green pepper. The pepper is very popular in Central America like Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic because the Cubanelle comes with unique flavors that you’d never expect!

Cubanelle pepper plants are able to grow up to 3 ft. tall. Ripening from light green, yellow-green, orange, to finally red or orange-red, the Cubanelle grows to 4-6 inches long with glossy, smooth, and firm skin. Their shape looks identical to a banana shape with tapered ends, or an Aconcagua pepper.  Don’t get it mixed with the banana pepper though, as their flavors are different! The Cubanelle peppers are known for their unique, imperfectly curled, and twisted shapes so no two Cubanelles are the same, but we find that charming!

Sweet with a touch of heat, they have flavors of mellow honey with a heat level of 0-1,000 SHUs. The heat is considered less than the Jalapeño so hot pepper lovers wouldn’t call this a hot pepper, but it does have slight spice. Also called the Italian Frying pepper for their amazing flavors when cooked in a frying pan with some olive oil, these are great to use for salads, stuffing, casseroles, mole sauce, or toppings on sandwiches and pizza. If you’re craving sofrito, the Cubanelle is a traditional ingredient that is commonly used in sofrito in South America and Central America. Get your hands on the Cubanelle pepper today because they are a delicious and vibrant way to add flavors to all kinds of dishes!
