Question of the Day: Do red bell peppers taste the same as green bell peppers?
Quick Answer: No, red bell peppers do not taste the same as green bell peppers.
As bell peppers mature, they become sweeter and less bitter. Green bell peppers are the juvenile fruits of the capsicum annuum plant and have a pronounced bitter edge. Red bell peppers are the fully ripened fruit of the same plant. Red bell peppers have a sweet, tangy flavor with little to no bitterness.
