Pimento peppers are a type of pepper with a mildly sweet flavor and very little heat. Pimento peppers are mild in taste compared to red bell peppers. Pimentos are often called cherry peppers.
Cherry peppers are crisp with sweet watery flesh. A cherry pepper heat flavor ranges from not spicy at all to a mild burn. On the Scoville scale that measures the spiciness or heat of chili peppers, a cherry pepper won’t reach above 5,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHUs). Jalapeno and cayenne peppers hold a lot more heat than cherry peppers.
