Are Different Colored Bell Peppers Different?

  • Green, yellow, orange, and red bell peppers are all the same type of pepper; just at different stages of ripeness.
  • Green peppers are unripe, yellow and orange peppers are at various stages of ripeness, and red peppers are fully ripe.
  • As the peppers age and ripen, their taste and their health benefits also change.
