I think it's the colors. Peppers are like looking at a living, breathing color wheel. Deep and bright reds, purple, spring greens to light yellow-greens, bright oranges and yellows. Peppers are just a feast for the eyes! And for the mouth - from super mild to Call-911-I'm-Melting-From-The-Inside-Out! Crisp, crunchy peppers are delicious!
