Question: Are bell peppers considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Scientists classify bell peppers as dicots.
Why Are Bell Peppers Considered Dicots?
When bell peppers seeds open, a tiny stem emerges with two seed leaves attached. The difference between a monocot and a dicot is that dicots have more than one embryonic leaf, and monocots only have one, so bell peppers are dicots.
