Actually, yes they are. Bell peppers come in many varieties. Much like a tomato plant, these pepper plants have green immature fruit and red mature fruit. And, also just like a tomato, the mature fruit can also be yellow or orange. Therefore, these varieties are just left on the vine longer to color.

You can also visit Burpee's web site to see all the different belle peppers available as well as their colors. I don't claim to be an expert but I know that if I want red belle I plant red and if I want green belles I plant green.

No, belle peppers come in several different colors. Red, green, yellow, orange, white, and purple. Each offer a completely different taste with red being the sweetest that I have found. I can actually eat a red belle like an apple they are so sweet.
