Bell Peppers

Bell Peppers

Bell peppers are truly a playful vegetable, excelling both taste and visual factors. From red to orange to green, bell peppers are often added for vibrancy into pastas, salads, or any zesty dish. When growing bell peppers from home, it is crucial to recognize that they start out green on the vine and then transition into the other colors. A distinction between the colors, brought on by the additional time on the vine, is that yellow peppers are sweet whereas green peppers tend to be more bitter. Bell peppers are extremely high in vitamin C, and they are a great source of vitamin E and beta carotene as well.
