Excellent combination of sweet pepper taste, warm chilli flavour and bright colour.
Use in dipping salsas of all sorts, spicy Italian meatballs and stir frys. Dial up the heat by slicing across the chilli and include the seeds. Alternatively, slice down the chilli and remove the seeds for less heat.
In general the chillies in these packs are Fresno or Seranade varieties, which have a rating of 2,500 to 8,000 on the Scoville Heat Scale for Chilli Peppers, to put this into context the hottest chilli is at 15,000,000 and a Jalapeño would be 2,500.

Mild chillies and mild flavour. Good for salads and garnishing.
They stay fresh long but they are not mild.
About as mild as a Nuclear War!
These are called mild but even after removing the seeds and pith from the inside, they are still very hot- not quite Scotch Bonnet hot- but very hot nevertheless. I do think that Ocado don't really pay too much attention to the quality of their own brand products if it looks okay and the supplier is only asking a low price, Ocado will take it without too much concern about quality or even freshness.
These are chillies at the end of the day, relatively mild but got a nice kick of spice - but avoid these chillies if you dont like spice. Would buy again.
There was a article on gardeners world which referred to a red chilli plant variety which was mild but occasionally there would be on the plant a very hot one which does not look any different from the others. Perhaps it is this variety. I had three chilli's in my pack, two were mild and the third was hot. I would only recommend these with a warning.
insane to call this mild
I didn't want any heat for my recipe so I took the seeds out, however, seeing as it was labelled as MILD I wasn't really being peculiar about handling it or making sure that no seeds got into the food and a few went in (3-4 seeds mind you) and the food was inedible. I immediately noticed it was going to be spicy from the moment the stir fry started making my nose burn. I taste tested and it was so hot and I did everything I knew to try to dial down the heat. we tried eating it and our faces were sweating, noses running and my hands are on fire after washing them multiple times and after nearly 12 hours now. insane to call this mild, we enjoy spicy food and this is by far the hottest thing we have ever tried.
