Green bell peppers are a type of sweet pepper that are commonly used in cooking and have a slightly bitter flavor. They are a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as potassium and fiber. Green bell peppers can be eaten raw or cooked, and are commonly used in salads, stir-fries, fajitas, and other dishes. They are easy to grow in a home garden and are typically in season from late summer to early fall. When selecting green bell peppers, look for specimens that are firm, heavy for their size, and have a glossy skin with no blemishes or soft spots. Store them in the refrigerator in a plastic bag for up to a week. To prepare green bell peppers, rinse them under cold water and cut off the stem and core. Slice or chop them as desired, and enjoy their slightly bitter, crunchy flavor in a variety of dishes.
