Question of the Day: Do red bell peppers taste different than yellow?
Quick Answer: Yes, yellow and red bell peppers do taste different.
Bell peppers go through a color progression as they ripen, and from one stage to the next, the taste and nutritional profile change slightly.
All bell peppers start green, and then most will turn yellow before becoming red when fully matured. Yellow bell peppers are sweeter than green but nowhere near as sweet as red.
Yellow bell peppers also still have just a touch of the bitterness that characterizes green bell peppers. Red bell peppers are sweet and free of bitterness.
