Bell Pepper, Red - 1 ct
Red bell peppers offer a wonderful combination of crunch and sweetness with a fruity flavor. The vibrant red flesh is thick, juicy, crisp, and succulent.
All bell peppers start out green and change color as they mature. If it's not picked, a green pepper may become yellow, orange, or red, depending on its varietal. The longer the fruit stays on the vine, the sweeter it becomes and the more nutritional value it gains. Red bell peppers offer a wonderful combination of crunch and sweetness with a fruity flavor. The vibrant red flesh is thick, juicy, crisp, and succulent.
Red bell peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A, and also contain vitamins E, K, and B6, potassium, manganese, fiber, folate, and thiamin. They also contain lycopene, which is an antioxidant that has been known to help protect the body and fight free radicals.
Red bell peppers are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as roasting, grilling, sautéing, baking, and stir-frying.
We strive to choose only organically grown or certified organic veggies and fruits from as close to home as possible. However, sometimes we are unable to find a local AND organic option, and in that event we may choose to offer a pesiticide-free local product from a farmer that uses integrated pest management on their crops. We target farms that put an emphasis on health, safety and the fair treatment of their employees, their animals and their farm. We have high standards, and so do our farms.

Store unwashed (or washed and dried) peppers in the refrigerator in a loosely closed plastic bag. Moisture is a pepper’s enemy and hastens spoiling. For peak flavor and nutrition, use within a week.
