Growing around four to six inches, the sweet, rich, flavorful Melrose Pepper is a great addition to your delicious meals. A family emigrated from Italy brought with them their Melrose pepper seeds, grew their roots in Suburban Chicago, and the rest is history! The Melrose Peppers may look like hot chilies, but they pack zero-heat. Although they have no heat, they are a versatile pepper in the kitchen with a ton of culinary options! Their sweetness and thin skins make it a great pepper to eat fresh, roast, fry, and stuff. You can even pair them with rice dishes and cook them into tomato sauces! These peppers turn from green to crimson red when mature. The flavor becomes more intense when they ripen for a longer period.
