Green Bell Peppers

Green peppers are commonly referred to as a kind of vegetable but, technically, they are a fruit. Green peppers are simply unripe bell peppers, and they tend to be less sweet than the ripened red and yellow peppers, with a slightly bitter taste. They also have the longest shelf life of all bell pepper varieties.
