Why Are My Green Bell Peppers Turning Red_

Question of the Day: Why are my green bell peppers turning red?

Quick Answer: Your bell peppers are turning red because they are ripening.

The majority of bell pepper varieties go from green to yellow and finally turn red when fully matured. Most green bell peppers are juvenile but will continue to ripen under the proper conditions, even after being picked.

The good news is that they will become sweeter and more nutritious as they ripen.
