Wisconsin Harvest of the Month: Peppers

Peppers are a wonderful Wisconsin fruit full of flavor and nutrients.


Peppers are a fruit that come in a variety of colors, flavors, and spice levels. The most common varieties are sweet peppers, such as green, red, and yellow bell peppers, and hot peppers such as jalapeños and habanero.


Peppers, of all types, are excellent sources of Vitamin C, Folate, and Vitamin E. Vitamin C helps boost the immune system and is an antioxidant. A single serving of red and yellow bell peppers provides 169% of your daily requirements, more than an orange! Folate is known to help prevent birth defects and is used in producing red blood cells. Vitamin E is another antioxidant that helps prevent chronic diseases, such as heart disease.


Try a variety of peppers to find which you enjoy most! Bell pepper slices pair well with your favorite dip. Replace chips with crunchy bell peppers as a great way to add more vegetables to your day. Adding a spicy pepper to your meals is a great way to add heat, and flavor, without adding a ton of extra calories.
