Is Banana Pepper Good for Health?

Banana peppers sold in a Mexican grocery

Banana pepper with scientific name Capsicum annuumsize includes medium of peppers or chili varieties, but larger (bigger) compared to normal chili (as I know). 

Length is around 6 inches (15 cm) and diameter is 1.5 inches (3.8 cm). In nature, this pepper could mature at a smaller length and a diameter.

I found this pepper in a Mexican store in my city, a deep south state. The color is yellow, but it is said that when peppers are ripen, the color changes to red, orange or even green. 

Some of banana peppers is processed to pickled, and other used as ingredient in many type of foods.

I myself use this peppers as an ingredient in the curry or eaten (cook) by mixing with other vegetables. The taste of peppers is mild hot (heat), even tend to a little bit sweet.

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 a good for our health.

Have you ever seen or tried Banana peppers?

  4. Beautiful and colourful vegetable but I am not sure I can find it in the shops of my city. I think few people would know how to cook it in France. Have a nice week!

  9. I never buy banana peppers, although I have eaten them, but I love regular bell peppers -- colored ones, not green ones, which are essentially unripe peppers.

  10. I'm surprised people aren't familiar with banana peppers. I grow them in my garden because they produce better for me than bell peppers. A tip: don't plant hot peppers near the mild ones or the mild ones will get hot too.
