bell pepper definition and meaning

What is a "bell pepper"?

A bell pepper, also known as a sweet pepper or capsicum, is a type of vegetable with a crisp texture and a sweet, slightly tangy flavor. It is characterized by its bell-like shape, with a hollow interior and four lobes. Bell peppers come in various colors, including green, red, yellow, and orange, and their color typically indicates their level of ripeness. Green peppers are unripe and have a slightly bitter flavor, while red, yellow, and orange peppers are fully ripe and have a sweeter taste. Bell peppers are commonly used in cooking and can be eaten raw or cooked. They are often sliced or diced and added to salads, stir-fries, fajitas, sandwiches, or stuffed with a variety of fillings. Bell peppers are rich in vitamins, particularly vitamin C, as well as antioxidants and dietary fiber, making them a nutritious addition to meals.
