I myself use this pepper as an ingredient in the many foods such as curry or mixed with other vegetables.


The taste of peppers is mild hot (heat), even tend to little bit sweet. Heat of pepper can be measured by Scorville Heat Unit (SHU).


Just for comparison, SHU of Banana pepper and Jalapeno:

- Banana peper, 500 SHU

- Jalapeno, about 5,250 SHU

In term of nutritional values, the pepper has low calories. Rich in fiber, potassium and vitamins (vitamins A and C).

Peppers also contain more beta carotene than other chili. Hence, banana pepper is good for our health.


Have you ever seen or tried Banana peppers?

  6. If it burns a little, then that's good.

  7. I've never been a huge fan of banana peppers, which is weird since I like other peppers! I maybe should try them on more foods.
