Colorful, Nutritious and Shapely Sweet Peppers

Red, yellow, green and even purple, blocky, horn-shaped and miniature all describe sweet peppers. Plus, these edible beauties are packed with Vitamin C, vitamin E, antioxidants and are only about 29 calories per serving.

The traditional bell pepper is sweet with 3 to 4 lobes. The name may refer to the shape of the fruit or the way it hangs down, like a bell, on the plant.

Blocky bells are nearly as wide as they are tall while half-bells are about half as wide as they are long. You will find green, red, orange, yellow, purple and ivory sweet bell peppers.

Bull’s horn peppers, also known as Corno di Toro, are believed to have come to the U.S. from Italy. These sweet peppers are thick-walled, shaped like a horn and usually mature to red.

The mini-snacking peppers are small, thin walled, contain very few seeds and are brightly colored.

A bit more information: Grow your sweet peppers in the vegetable garden, container or mixed border.  They thrive in full sun and moist well drained soil.
