Bell peppers come in red, yellow, orange, green and even white, purple, and brown colors. But did you know all bell peppers start green?
HOW IT GROWS
Bell peppers grow on plants that grow about knee-height high. Farmers fertilize (nourish) the land up to three years before planting bell peppers on it. Peppers are handpicked and finish ripening on their way to the grocery store. While peppers grow best in warm climates, a touch of cold weather sweetens it.
