Are Pimentos Spicy?

Question of the Day: Are pimentos spicy?

Quick Answer: Pimentos are peppers, but they are among the mildest of small red peppers. They are much smoother and may even be slightly sweet in comparison to other red peppers. That’s why they are often referred to as cherry peppers, rather than pimento peppers. Pimentos are even milder than red bell peppers (which are famous for being mild peppers).
