Yellow bell peppers are very juicy; more so than at any other stage.
Yellow bell peppers are available throughout the year. Price and size will fluctuate, but they are generally very expensive compared to green bells. Many colored bells are grown in greenhouses.
They should be glossy and firm.
Hybrid peppers are common and typically won’t be identified at most supermarkets, but may be specially marked at health food stores. Names include: Palidin, North Star, Commandant, Lafayette, Early Sunsation, and Camelot.
