The most common pepper in markets today is the Sweet Pepper or Bell Pepper. There are a number of varieties and all are in the Capsicum family, making them a cousin to chili peppers, such as jalapenos and habaneros.
Red bell peppers are simply green peppers that have been allowed to ripen on the vine longer and are, consequently, sweeter. There are also yellow, orange and purple varieties, each with subtly different flavors.
Look for peppers that are not soft and have no dark spots or obvious bruising. One sign of a pepper that is not fresh is when there are small pits in the skin.
Green bell peppers have twice the amount of vitamin C as oranges and red or yellow bell peppers have 4 times as much.
