Banana peppers are sweet chili peppers that are great for snacking, pickling, roasting, stuffing, and grilling
A banana pepper is a medium-sized, yellow wax pepper that, at full maturity, is bright yellow-green and slightly curved, resembling its namesake fruit. Banana peppers are very mild (they are generally rated at 0-500 on the Scoville Heat Unit Scale), but still add heat and slight tang to dishes. Like most peppers, banana peppers are rich in vitamins, especially Vitamin C, and are a high-fiber food. Banana pepper plants are easy to care for and have an extremely high yield. If left on the plant past maturity, banana peppers will darken from yellow to orange to red, and will become sweeter in flavor. These peppers are originally from Hungary, but have been popular in the US since the 1940s.
