Inventory, 10 lbs : 0
White Holland bell peppers are a thick-fleshed, sweet pepper. Square-shaped with three to four uniform lobes encasing a central seed cavity, each pepper measures four to five inches in diameter. The flesh and skin are actually a pale yellow-white color, with a sweet, mild flavor and crisp texture.
White Holland bell peppers are available spring through summer.
Low in calories, bell peppers contain no sodium, fat or cholesterol. An excellent source of vitamin C, one medium bell pepper contains about 30 calories.
White Holland bell peppers are most often used for display. Their uniform shape, color and attached stem are ideal for centerpieces or as vessels. They may also be used in lightly cooked or fresh preparations such as salads and appetizer recipes. Pair with red, orange, purple or yellow Holland bell peppers, fresh parsley and cilantro, cucumbers, jicama, soft cheeses, meats and grains. To prepare, cut off tops; remove seeds and veins; rinse well. For optimum flavor and texture, use within one week. Peppers may be frozen, but crispness will be lost.
The bell-shaped pod characteristic to this variety of sweet pepper gave this pepper its name. Bell peppers are believed to have been developed in the Americas in pre-Columbian times. The first known reference to these peppers was in 1681 by an English pirate in Panama.
A hardy thick-wall variety and insect-free, Holland bell peppers are hothouse-grown in a controlled environment planted from seed. Grown outdoors in temperate regions, bell pepper plants are herbaceous annuals; however, grown in regions where temperatures do not drop below freezing, the plants are herbaceous perennials.
