Do you know where most green bell peppers sold in the U.S. are grown?

Most green bell peppers in the U.S. are grown in Florida.

Bell peppers are mostly water so they are very low in calories, yet they still pack a nutritious punch. Green bell peppers have twice as much vitamin C as an orange, and red bell peppers have three times as much.

Fresh from Florida’s bell pepper toolkit lists these simple ways to add bell peppers to your meals:

Stuffed Peppers = Bell Peppers + Ground Beef + Rice + Onion + Seasonings

Veggie Pizza = Pizza Dough + Tomato Sauce + Mozzarella Cheese + Peppers + Spinach

Stir-fry = Chicken + Pepper + Onion + Carrots + Soy Sauce + Garlic + Seasonings
