A mild, medium sized chili pepper that grows to 6-10 inches, often used when green, though it can be used when red. The basic variety ripens to a dark green/reddish color, but other strains ripen to full red. They are one of the most common chilis in the United States and are used in many foods and recipes. Red varieties can be strung together and dried to make ristras.

  2. I’m looking for a mild chili pepper to use for canned chopped green chilies. Would Anaheim be what I need? Or maybe Cubanelle? We grew some about 10 years ago and can’t remember what they were! They were green, 7-8 inches long, banana shape and mild.

    REPLY: Diane, any of those peppers would work great for you. Try banana peppers as well. — Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.
