Red Bell Pepper
Mekostar’s red bell peppers are grown in our Da Lat greenhouses according to GLOBALG.A.P. standards. The Red Bell Pepper has a shiny red skin and crispy flesh. Red bell peppers are sweeter than green or yellow bell peppers having a longer ripening period. Red bell peppers start off green and turn red when they are ripe. Mekostar Red Bell Peppers are harvested at the point of maturity to provide the best quality.
Red bell peppers are a great source of potassium and vitamin B6. Diets high in potassium can help keep blood pressure at good levels and reduce the risk of stroke, while vitamin B6 keeps the nervous and immune systems healthy.
The sweetness of red bell peppers can be enjoyed raw as a healthy snack or added into salads. Cook, stir-fry or stew the red bell pepper for a more intense flavor.
