Capsicum annuum, the bell peppers with large fruits, almost as long as broad, green when unripe and turning orange, yellow or red when mature. Bell pepper or sweet pepper fruit is frequently consumed in its unripe form, when the fruit is still green. Green as well as ripe fruits are also used as salad and pizza toppings.

Hallo,
we get these three colors vegetable paper and al of them are used in the kitchen. There are other colors too. Read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capsicum
 
In this vegetable and fruit week I was reading more information on the net as well. Strangely there is more and detailed information and also more fotos in german wiki than engl. wiki. So if you look for information try the german language too. You will see more fotos there.
Regards
Nalini

Excellent capture.  I used to grow these vegetable in pots.  Now I am thinking  of buying the seeds after seeing the photos sent by you.

Thanks for sharing.

Regards,

Mani.
