Pepper, Italian Red (Sweet)

Pepper, Italian Red (Sweet)

Pepper, Italian Red (Sweet)

The Italian red peppers grow to a length of six to eight inches.  They are wonderful eaten raw in strips or in salads.  In our opinion, they are better tasting than the red bell peppers.  The red Italian pepper adds color to many cooked recipes, but we believe that cooking them is a waste of their wonderful raw flavor.  Select Italian red peppers that are firm and free of blemishes and wrinkles.  See the nutritional chart below.
