Banana Pepper


Available Now!





Named after their banana-like shape and bright yellow color, banana pepper is a medium-sized member of the chili pepper family (not spicy, 0-500 Scoville units) and has a mild, sweet, tangy taste and crunchy texture. While typically bright yellow, they may change to green, red, or orange as they ripen. Banana peppers are excellent for pickling, stuffing, or adding to foods in raw-form to add visual appeal and texture to pizzas, salads, casseroles, and sandwiches. Banana peppers are also an excellent source of vitamins C and B6.
