The Shocking Truth About Bell Peppers


You're not going to believe this...

They're on the one of the tastiest vegetables in the world. Fresh, grilled, roasted, tossed in a salad or on top of a pizza, chances are you eat peppers all the time.

You may have a favorite: is it red, green, or yellow? Or perhaps you love them all — a bite of bitter green today and a serving of sweet red tomorrow. Some are cheap, some are expensive...  Surely they must be different plants if they taste so different.

Well, if this didn't shock you, guess what: peppers are a fruit. 



Feeling hungry? Here's how to make super tasty marinated red peppers.
