The Anaheim pepper is a mild, medium-sized chili pepper that grows to 6-10 inches in length. It is often used for cooking and recipes when green, though it can be used when red.

The basic variety ripens to a dark green/reddish colour, but other strains ripen to full red. They are one of the most common chili peppers in the United States and are used in many foods and recipes. Red varieties can be strung together and dried to make ristras.
