  • Bell peppers are named for their bell shape. Readily available at local produce markets and grocery stores in a wide range of colors, bell peppers can be green, red, yellow, orange, purple, black, white or even striped.

    Green bell peppers tend to be the least sweet, almost slightly bitter, while the yellow, orange and the red ones are the sweetest. But the green peppers are almost always the cheapest.
