So you thought the red capsicum is a completely new and different veggie? What if we told you it is actually the green capsicum in disguise? That’s right! Red bell peppers are simply green bell peppers that have been left on the vine to continue to ripen. However, Red bell peppers are sweeter than green ones because bell peppers sweeten as they ripen. They also have more than twice the vitamin C of a green pepper, and are a good source of Vitamin A. Brownie points!
