Health & Nutrition Notes for Banana Peppers

This variety of pepper best tolerates warmer regions of the United States and is commonly grown in the summer, late spring and early fall. It has a very mild flavor that isn't hot to the taste buds like its peer, the jalapeno.

It is an excellent source for Vitamin C at 62 milligrams per large pepper.

In addition, that size of specimen will also provide almost 200 milligrams of potassium benefits along with a splash of calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc benefits.

These are terrific in summer salads or enjoyed in their pickled state.
