The skin is waxy, shiny, and smooth, ripening from dark green to red when mature. Underneath the surface, the flesh is thick, aqueous, and crisp, encasing a central cavity filled with round and flat, cream-colored seeds. Lipstick chile peppers are known for their very sweet, fruity flavor and are mild, containing little to no heat.
