Tuesday's Tips & Tricks: Bell Peppers

You can find lots of information on the internet.  Some true, some not, and some you just don't know.  I got an email asking what the difference was between a bell pepper with 3 lobes and one with 4 lobes. 

When I first started cooking, my Mom said there was not a difference in the peppers with 3 or 4 lobes.  Each pepper is slightly different.  But the flavor is due to when it was picked and where it was grown.

According to some information on the web, a pepper with 3 lobes is sweeter to eat.  A pepper with 4 lobes is better for cooking.  But, when I checked other sites, they say there is no difference in taste or cooking.  It is just a variation that occurs during the growing process. 

Can you tell a difference in taste between a bell pepper with 3 lobes and one with 4 lobes?

Check back on Friday,

  3. I cannot imagine why the number of lobes on a bell pepper would affect its taste. Do we need a congressional study?

    1. I don't think it does either, Stephen. But maybe a Congressional Study is needed. LOL!

  4. That is so interesting....I am so getting some peppers and comparing them....you got me intrigued :)

  5. 4 lobe bell peppers are better for cooking stuffed bell peppers.

    Only because it is more stable as a base, ha ha.
