I didnít know this about bell peppers

Whatís the difference between red, yellow, orange and green peppers?


Green bell peppers are immature versions of red, orange, or yellow peppers. Since they are less ripe, they have a slightly bitter flavor and can sometime cause digestive disruption.

I love bell peppers. I love the classic stuffed peppers with ground beef and rice. I love them on pizza, subs, and omelettes. Raw, cut into strips, dipping in Italian Salad Dressing is a favorite for me.

I will cook with the green ones, but if I'm stuffing peppers, I use the red ones. Milder and sweeter and don't overpower the flavor of the stuffing. Never had any luck growing them at home. Phil's had a couple of nice crops of them, but not me.

I substitute riced cauliflower for 'rice' when I make stuffed peppers. You can use ground beef, or really just about anything. Like try diced up steak, seasoned and sauteed very lightly before stuffing in and baking...

We use a ton of red, orange, and yellow bell peppers. Basically zero green peppers. Some of my favorite ingredients.

Green peppers, like celery -- boring.

Did you know that the male and female version of peppers can be determined by the bottom of the pepper? 3 vs 4 bumps.

when you say "stuff your peppers" what exactly are you doing?

Honestly, I have never had the need to sex peppers. Might have something to do with my hardship in growing them.

If someone would teach me how to sex pepper plants when selecting them for planting them, I would be grateful.
