Aloha peppers have a familiar flavor dressed up in a cute outfit. Also known as striped Holland bell peppers, this varietal was discovered in the Netherlands and has been cultivated to show off its stunning stripes.
Aloha peppers taste very similar to bell peppers. They have a sweet, mild flavor combined with a striking appearance. These peppers can be eaten raw or cooked. They’re a perfect addition to salads, and work well grilled or seared. They will keep their variegated stripes even after they are cooked.
Sunset Aloha peppers are grown in North America, and boast a better shelf life when compared to European grown bell peppers.
