Pimento, Pimiento, or Cherry Peppers are a chili pepper cultivar that produces red, heart-shaped peppers 7-10 cm long and 5-7 cm wide. Pimentos have very thick flesh that is sweeter and more aromatic than bell peppers. They have a Scoville heat rating of 100-500 units, but there are some spicy varieties. Like other peppers, Pimentos are not frost tolerant and grow best at temperatures above 13° C. They can be grown in containers and brought inside in cooler regions. Pimentos can be eaten fresh, stuffed, pickled, or added to Pimento cheese spread.
