Manzano peppers are typically eaten fresh, because its thick flesh can be difficult to dry. Do not be alarmed when you cut into this pepper because the seeds are naturally black.
Similarly, you may ask, is it OK to eat pepper seeds?
No, pepper seeds are not toxic but you may still want to remove them before eating. Pepper seeds are slightly bitter, but not so bitter that they will ruin a dish in most cases; however, you may want to remove them if you are using a large number of peppers.
One may also ask, are pepper seeds poisonous to humans? No, Capsicum seeds are not toxic, but, as Clifford wrote, they are bitter and (to some) unpalatable. Left in, they may spoil any dish you are cooking and may cause some ‘heartburn’ or stomach upset.
Beside this, is a pepper bad if the seeds are brown?
When fully ripe, most peppers seeds are supposed to be brown or tan. not white. In my experience, peppers with brown are just old and withered. They are safe, just not as tasty.
How hot is a Manzano pepper?
There’s a good eating level of heat in the manzano – 12,000 to 30,000 Scoville heat units. This makes it about twice as hot as the jalapeño pepper at a minimum, with the potential for the difference to be up to twelve times hotter (mildest jalapeño to hottest manzano).
