Sun Belle Colored Bell Peppers

Greenhouse bell peppers can be red, orange or yellow and even grow in white, purple and lilac hues.

  • Whether red, orange or yellow, Sun Belle greenhouse bell peppers are amazingly healthy and versatile - slices packed in lunches, chopped in salads, grilled whole on the barbecue, paired with steak, or served as healthy hors d'oeuvres. Greenhouse bell peppers are uniformly colored and shaped, shiny and crunchy when eaten raw. Bell peppers teem with Vitamin C - nearly 200 percent of daily requirements in a single pepper and a healthy dose of iron. Colored bell peppers have more complicated sets of antioxidants, including betacarotene and lycopene, than do green peppers.
  • All bell peppers start as green peppers. The orange, yellow and red colors come in later and evidence a sweeter and mellower taste, as well as greater healthful properties. Pimentoes are roasted cooked peppers with the skin removed.
  • Try this at home. Roasting a pepper on a meat fork over an open flame until it is blackened. Place the pepper in a paper bag for 30 minutes. Scrape the charred skin and slice into strips for a delicious savory snack, to dress up an antipasti spread or to accompany meat.
