Red Thai Chile peppers vary in size and shape, depending on the specific variety. The skin is smooth and waxy, ripening from green to red when mature. Underneath the surface, the flesh is thin, crisp, and light red, wrapping a central cavity filled with small, round, and flat cream-colored seeds. Red Thai Chile peppers have a fruity, subtly earthy flavor with a sharp-tasting heat that builds and then lingers on the palate.
