Cubanelle Pepper Flavor Profile
Like the commonly known bell pepper, the cubanelle pepper is honeylike in flavor, but not as mild as a sweet pepper. Its mellow taste and punchy bite make it the perfect pepper for warmer fall cuisine. They’re roughly 6-8 inches in size, with a subtle curl at the end of their tail.
Cubanelle peppers have been compared to Anaheim peppers because of their satisfying snap. When matured, their deep green hues can transform into vibrant yellows or reds.
The Origin of Cubanelle Peppers
Found mainly in Cuban, Dominican, and Puerto Rican cuisine, cubanelle peppers originate from South and Central America. In fact, “cubanelle” actually translates to little Cuba!
Many chefs highlight its vast flavors in Sofrito or in pizza and pasta sauces. Its hearty qualities are what make it such a versatile and diverse nightshade. Used cross-culturally, cubanelles are also quite popular in Italian cuisine. This is a direct result of explorers bringing the pepper into other European countries.
