People Are Just Now Finding Out That Red, Orange, And Green Peppers Are The Same Vegetable
Style and lifestyle blogger Amy (@callmeamye) recently found out that that green, orange and red peppers are all the same vegetable, just at different stages of ripeness. Turns out she’s not the only one.
OK so I've just found out that green peppers turn yellow then orange then red and they're actually all the same pepper just less ripe and my mind is blown

On the vine! It’s why red ones are the sweetest because they’re most ripe 😱

I heard the same thing today about black and green olives! Black olives are just ripe green ones 🤯

You are getting a stellar education on the ripeness of all of the foods and honestly this is the best thread I’ve ever seen in my life.
