Few vegetables rival bell peppers for versatility and prettiness. Crisp, sweet Fresh1® bell peppers are available in green, yellow, red, purple, and orange, adding a festive look to any meal, whether it’s part of a simple veggie tray, a topping on your pizza, or a colorful ingredient in your favorite cuisine. Bell peppers not only look great, they’re packed with flavor and nutritional goodness.

Health Benefits
Eating at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day is essential to maintaining good health and preventing disease. Bell peppers make it easy to get more produce every day. Add peppers to soups, pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and main dishes for a crisp burst of flavor and nutrition. Bell peppers are easy to cook with, taste great, and add so much to your meals—and to your health.

Fun Facts

  • With only 30 calories in a serving (approximately one pepper), bell peppers are a healthy snack.
  • Red bell peppers contain nine times more vitamin A than green peppers. They also have twice as much vitamin C as their green cousins.
  • All sweet peppers are green at the immature state. As the peppers mature, they turn color. Because the sugar content increases as a sweet pepper matures, colored peppers tend to be sweeter than green peppers.

Selection Tips
When choosing peppers, look for smooth skinned peppers with no bruises, cuts, or soft spots.

Availability
The Fresh1 peppers come from farms in California, Michigan, New York, and Washington, and they are available all year round.

Storage
Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
