Red Bell Peppers are medium to large in size, averaging 5-8 centimetres in diameter and 5-12 centimetres in length, and are rounded, square, and blocky in shape with 3-4 lobes and a thick green stem. The smooth skin is firm, glossy, and bright red, and underneath the skin, the pale red flesh is thick, juicy, crisp, and succulent. There is also a central, hollow cavity that contains very small, flat, and bitter cream-coloured seeds and a thin, spongy white to the pale red membrane. Red Bell Peppers have an aqueous crunch and are sweet with a fruity flavour.
Red Bell Peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A, and also contain vitamins E, K, and B6, potassium, manganese, fibre, folate, and thiamin. They also contain lycopene, which is an antioxidant that has been known to help protect the body and fight free radicals. Red Bell Peppers are favoured by chefs and home cooks for their sweet and fruity flavour, crunchy flesh, and bright red colouring
