comment Why do we eat unripened chili peppers?
It's true, peppers take a looong tie to turn red. All of Joe's points are good, but the one about ripening time I think is especially true. I am a gardener, and sell produce, I can attest to the fact that green peppers are by far cheaper and easier to raise. Also because the longer they sit on the plant, the more likely something will happen to them. The plants also produce considerably more, when the fruits are picked green.
