The Unrivaled Practical Guide for Asian Cooking

Are peppers the same as capsicums and do all peppers taste the same regardless of their color?

Yes. Green, red and yellow peppers are members of the same capsicum family as chilies, and are also known as capsicums. Different colors of peppers taste differently. Red peppers are distinctly sweeter than green, which are simply unripened red peppers. Yellow peppers are mild. The flavor of all peppers will be even smoother and sweeter if they are grilled or roasted. If you want to peel the peppers but do not want to cook them, a sharp potato peeler will take off almost all the skin.
