Yellow bell peppers are medium to large in size, averaging seven centimeters in length and five centimeters in diameter, and are rounded, square, and blocky in shape with 3-4 lobes and a thick green stem. The smooth skin is firm, glossy, and pale green when young, transforming to bright yellow with age. Underneath the skin, the vibrant yellow flesh is thick, crisp, and succulent, with a hollow cavity that contains very small, flat and bitter cream-colored seeds and a thin, spongy membrane. Yellow bell peppers are crunchy and juicy with a mild, sweet flavor.
Yellow bell peppers are available year-round, with a peak season in the summer.
