Anyone have recipe ideas or links? I just picked 3 from my garden today.

How hot are they? I say salsa, or stuff them with cheddar cheese or cream cheese and bake.

Well what I've seen so far seems to indicate that you can substitute them for green peppers or Jalopenos. The Internets are failing me at this point.

I think the best thing to do is to taste one. Once you know how hot they are, you'll better be able to decide what to do with them.

Ok, Bing search engine is at least giving me a little more info.

And, since they can vary so much not only from pepper to pepper, but inside a single pepper so much, I would take a nibble from the bottom (where peppers have the least heat) and then again closer to the top & stem.

Cubaneros can be like a green pepper at the bottom and a jalepeño at the top.

Stuffed cubaneros are yummy!

Strawberry! Ok, that gives me an idea of how to treat it. Thank you.

For sure!

My tomatoes, basil, and dill are going gangbusters, our peppers? Not so much. I'm jealous! Hope dinner tastes great.

The tomatoes are teasing me; big, and green - not ripe yet. Basil is going nuts (I have Genovese, Thai, and Purple). Cucumbers and beans are coming out of my armpits. Anyone in Maryland need cukes, I can hook ya up :)

I love Cubaneros. Not growing any this year. I would pickle them or throw them on a sandwich.

I'm going to do a small batch of ginger pickled shishito peppers today. We have been picking our sunsugar cherry tomatoes every day. Wish I was closer, I would take you up on those cukes and then return the favour next month!
