Red pepper packing. Worker sorts red bell peppers before packing them into boxes. Bell peppers are the fruit of the Capsicum annuum plant but are eaten as a vegetable either raw or cooked. As the peppers ripen they change colour from green, through yellow to red. Red peppers are sweeter than green peppers because the sugar content increases as the fruits mature.
