Did you know that bell peppers have genders? Well its sorta true, here’s the thing, Bell peppers with 3 bump on the bottom are male peppers and they are better for cooking and they have less seeds. The Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are female, and have way more seeds but they are sweeter.
I have received MANY emails, tweets, and Pinterest comments about bell peppers not having genders. I am well aware of reproduction of bell peppers and that its not actually accurate that they have genders because they are hermaphroditic. This has really grown on both Pinterest, Social Media and online so I just want everyone to know that I am fully aware. This “TIP” has been around for ages to help remember the difference between the two, and which one is better for cooking, raw, sweeter, seeds, Etc.
