Technically speaking, bell peppers are fruits, though they are treated as vegetables in cooking. Bell peppers come in many colors, from green to red, orange, yellow, and occasionally purple. All are delicious fresh but can also be prepared in numerous other ways. Bell peppers are high in vitamin C, and red peppers are a particularly good source of lycopene.
