Cubanelle Chiles are a creamy-yellow translucent color, very similar to the Banana Wax Pepper. However, these two chiles differ in heat, color and size. The Cubanelle has a thin skin with a thick flesh due to its immaturity.

Picked at an immature stage, the Cubanelle Chiles are yellow and has a sweet hot flavor varying from warm to moderately hot.

During the 65 day Cubanelle Chiles maturing stage the color changes to an orange-red and the heat rises to an almost inedible intense heat while keeping its sweetness. Although the chile can be eaten at any stage, the Cubanella Chile is most popular in the yellow stages.

This chile is traditionally pickled or made into yellow mole sauces. The Cubanelle Chile is excellent in traditional Latin dishes adding color to bean and rice dishes, as well as adding a bite to any soups or salads.

Melissa’s Cubanelle Chiles are hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose crisp, yellow, glossy peppers for freshness. Avoid limp and shriveled peppers.

Store peppers in a paper bag, between paper towels or in a plastic bag for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
