An anguished user tweeted that "his whole life had been a lie". Another wrote: "I thought they were different types of pepper. I'm so shocked!
"I've also seen yellow part of orange before and not timed was an indication of maturation – somehow I thought it was a mutated pepper or something."

Another posted: "I discovered this a few weeks ago by visiting our warehouse, by the head! & # 39;
A third added: "I really thought they were different plants, every day, a school day!
The differences between the different colors of pepper are not limited to color. They also have different tastes and are full of different nutrients.
