History:

The Cubanelle Sweet Pepper has its roots in the culinary traditions of the Caribbean, particularly in Cuba and the Dominican Republic, from where it gets its name. Introduced to the United States by immigrants, this pepper variety has become a staple in many cuisines, prized for its mild heat and sweet flavor. Its elongated shape and thin walls make it a favorite for frying and stuffing, adding a delightful flavor and texture to dishes.


Culinary Uses:

Cubanelle Sweet Peppers are valued for their versatility in the kitchen. With their thin walls and mild flavor, they are excellent for frying, grilling, or sautéing, as they develop a delicious sweetness when cooked. These peppers are also popular for stuffing with various fillings, such as cheese, meat, or rice, creating flavorful and satisfying dishes. Additionally, Cubanelle Sweet Peppers can be enjoyed raw in salads or sandwiches, adding a crisp texture and a hint of sweetness to meals.


Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:

As indeterminate plants, Cubanelle Sweet Peppers will produce fruit continuously throughout the growing season. Plant them in a sunny location with well-drained soil enriched with organic matter, ensuring they receive adequate sunlight and water. Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost date, then transplant seedlings outdoors once all danger of frost has passed. Space plants approximately 18-24 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation and growth. Provide support for the plants, such as staking or caging, to prevent them from bending or breaking under the weight of the fruit. Regular watering and fertilization will promote healthy growth and abundant yields of these flavorful sweet peppers.
