The color of bell peppers changes from green to yellow, orange, and red the longer it is allowed to mature on the plant. Green peppers feature a more bitter flavor profile, while the yellow bell peppers are sweeter.
Yellow capsicum is juicier and milder than the green capsicum that we are used to eating because it has been allowed to ripen fully on the plant before picking.
Yellow bell peppers can be eaten raw or cooked. Use raw in salads, cut into strips and eat with dips, or use as an edible garnish. Dice capsicums for use on pizzas; cut into chunks for kebabs; use in pasta sauces; or add to stir fries. Stuff with rice or a breadcrumb mixture and bake. Add roasted capsicums, either hot or cold, to salads and sandwiches.
Sweet pepper is technically a colorful summer fruit that is colloquially categorized as a vegetable due to its versatile role in the kitchen.
