Green bell peppers, botanically classified as Capsicum annuum, are the young, edible fruits of the perennial or annual plant that is a member of the Solanaceae family. Green bell pepper plants can grow up to one meter in height and lack capsaicin, which is the element that causes the tongue to taste spice or heat. Also known as Capsicum and Paprika in Europe, Green bell peppers are harvested prematurely when they are still young, approximately seventy days after planting. These peppers are favored by chefs and home cooks for their mildly bitter flavor and juicy, crunchy texture.

Green bell peppers are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as baking, sautéing, roasting, and grilling. When used fresh, the pepper can be chopped and tossed into green salads, sliced as an appetizer for dips and spreads, chopped for salsa, or layered on sandwiches for an added layer of crunch. Green bell peppers can also be roasted and served over pasta, baked into casseroles, chopped into stews, cooked into a frittata, mixed into curries, or halved, stuffed, and baked with cheeses, meats, and grains. Green bell peppers pair well with tomatoes, corn, red onion, onions, garlic, potatoes, black beans, chickpeas, cilantro, peaches, coconut milk, ground beef, pork, turkey, shrimp, eggs, rice, quinoa, faro, and couscous. The peppers will keep 1-2 weeks when stored in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.

Green bell peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C and also contain vitamins A, B6, and K, potassium, folic acid, fiber, and beta-carotene.
