Pepper, Red Bell

Pepper, Red Bell

Red bell peppers are the mature form of green bell peppers.  They have a sweet flavor, and probably would be even more popular than the green ones, if it wasn’t for their price.  Red bell peppers are an excellent source of vitamins A (9 times higher than green bell peppers) and C (more than double green bell peppers).  See the nutritional chart below.
