Tips & Notes
Bell pepper is the common name for a cultivar group, widely cultivated for its edible, bell-shaped fruits, characterized by a glossy exterior of different colors, including red, yellow, green and orange. Bell peppers are sometimes grouped with less pungent pepper varieties known as “sweet peppers.” There also are varieties of that are pungent or hot, such as the cayenne and jalapeño peppers.
The color of bell peppers can be green, red, yellow, orange, and, more rarely, white, purple, blue, brown and black, depending on when they are harvested and the specific cultivar. Green peppers are unripe bell peppers, while the others are all ripe, with the color variation based on cultivar selection.
Because they are unripe, green peppers are less sweet and slightly more bitter than yellow, orange, purple, or red peppers. Purple cultivars also tend to be slightly bitter, while red, orange and yellow are sweeter and almost fruity.
The taste of ripe peppers also can vary with growing conditions and post-harvest storage treatment; the sweetest are fruit allowed to ripen fully on the plant in full sunshine, while fruit harvested green and after-ripened in storage are less sweet.
