Cubanelle Pepper is a variety of sweet pepper commonly used in Cuban, Puerto Rican, and Dominican cuisine. Sweet Cubanelle peppers can sometimes be slightly hot, but with only a touch of heat.

Fruit is typcally 6-8 inches in size and is prized for its sweet, mild flesh, rich flavor, and pretty colors. The thin-walled pepper is especially suited for quick cooking and has a low water content.

 

Best picked when yellow-green for use in roasting, stuffing, as a pizza topping, for frying, and is one of the traditional ingredients in sofrito.

 

They can also be left to mature and harvested when bright orange-red. In the garden, in addition to their famed taste and colors, the Cubanelle peppers are also known for their unique, imperfectly curled, wrinkled, and twisted shapes--no two seem to ever be alike.
