About sweet mini bell peppers

Sweet mini bell peppers are miniature versions of standard sweet peppers. They are usually about 2-4 inches long in size and have a green stem at the top. Sweet mini bell peppers are a vibrant red, orange, or yellow in color. Their skin is slightly thinner than that of regular bell peppers, and their inner flesh matches the outer skin color. Sweet mini bell peppers have a hollow inside and contain very few seeds. 

These tiny peppers are sweeter than regular-sized bell peppers, with a very mild flavor and firm exterior. These bright-colored vegetables add a cheerful splash of color, a sweet burst of flavor, and a satisfying crunch to meals and appetizers. Sweet mini bell peppers also make great bite-sized snacks all by themselves —  simply hold them by the stem and bite the pepper off directly below the stem. 

Sweet mini bell peppers are grown in Mexico's western coastal states, including Sinaloa, Sonora, Baja California, and Jalisco.
