Whenever we go grocery shopping my daughter is always drawn to anything that is her favorite color…PURPLE!!! So it didn’t surprise me when she squealed with delight at these gorgeous purple peppers and asked if she could get it. It is such a vibrant color and was the perfect topping to add to our homemade pizzas! We also spent the rest of our shopping trip doing our best to recite the Peter Piper Picked A Peck of Purple Peppers tongue twister
Colorful peppers are generally more expensive than green ones because they have been left longer on the vine to ripen and gain their color. This also results in less yield per plant so it’s more costly for farmers. But we always think it’s worth the wait and the extra money to enjoy colorful peppers like this beautiful purple one!
