Cherry peppers grow best in warm temperatures between 70-85°F and require full sun and well-draining soil. They can be grown in containers or in the ground and typically take 70-90 days to mature.
Cherry peppers can be harvested when they reach their mature size and color. They are often harvested while still green, but can also be left to ripen to their desired color.
Cherry peppers are low in calories and a good source of vitamin C and vitamin A. They also contain some fiber, potassium, and antioxidants.
Cherry peppers are often used in pickling, salads, sandwiches, and as a garnish for dishes. They can also be stuffed with cheese or other fillings and baked or fried.
Cherry peppers contain capsaicin, which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. They may also help improve digestion and boost the immune system.
