Prime Time bell peppers are field grown in the US from May through November, beginning in the Coachella Valley. In early summer, production transitions to Bakersfield, and eventually peaks in Oxnard mid-summer through late fall. During the winter and early spring months, Prime Time bell peppers are grown and packed in carefully selected field and hot house locations throughout Mainland and Baja Mexico, and shipped from Prime Time facilities in Nogales, Arizona and San Diego, California.
Colored bell peppers have many health benefits and are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Flavor varies slightly by color as red peppers are sweet, yellow and orange peppers are fairly mild and green peppers tend to be more savory. Delicious roasted, sautéed, grilled and stuffed, or simply sliced and eaten with your dip of choice, peppers have a multitude of culinary uses.
Prime Time peppers are packed in 5 lb, 11 lb, 15 lb, 25 lb, and RPC cartons, as well as a variety of bags and bins.
