Many large green bell peppers with some red color on some

These large green bell peppers were for sale at the Newark, Delaware farmer's market. Green bell peppers are usually just unripe red bell peppers (rarely, unripe fruit of other-colored varieties), which is evident in the reddish tinge on some fruit. If left to ripen, many of these peppers will turn completely red, although I do not recommend using this practice if you wish to eat red peppers, as peppers ripened off the plant often become shriveled and lose their crispness before they are fully ripe.

I love green peppers but over time, I have begun to use them less and less, instead preferring either red peppers (which have a sweeter flavor and often have more vitamin A and C) or some of the milder hot peppers, especially the poblano, which is darker and has a deeper flavor.
