Question of the Day: Are green bell peppers spicy?
Quick Answer: No, green bell peppers are not spicy.
Green bell peppers are the immature fruit of the capsicum annuum plant. This plant has a genetic makeup that prevents it from forming capsaicin.
Capsaicin is the chemical that makes peppers hot. Lacking capsaicin, green bell peppers aren’t spicy.
