Did You Know?

Red and yellow bell peppers are just green peppers that have been allowed to ripen.

Red peppers are fully ripened, and they require more time to grow, resulting in their sweeter, fruitier flavor and higher price tag. On the other hand, since green bell peppers can be harvested sooner, they're cheaper to grow and cheaper in price. Yellow and orange peppers are simply in the middle of the spectrum when it comes to ripeness (though some varieties remain yellow when fully mature).
