How to Pick Bell Peppers:
- Choose peppers with firm, deeply colored and glossy outer skin.
- Keep peppers in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped in a plastic bag.
- Avoid peppers with blemishes, bruises or soft spots as that is an indication that the pepper is damaged or overripe.
- Bell peppers will last for up to 10 days fresh.
