What’s the Difference Between Red, Yellow & Green Bell Peppers?

Plenty of recipes call for either red, yellow or green bell peppers, but have you ever wondered what the actual difference is between them? The truth is that they are more similar than you might have guessed. They are really just the same pepper but at different stages of the ripening process, with green peppers being the least ripened, yellow in the middle and red being the most ripened. Red peppers tend to have a sweeter taste than green peppers which are more bitter. Yellow peppers are somewhere between the two in the bitter/sweet taste spectrum.
