Trader Joe's Organic Tri-Color Bell Peppers (Red, Yellow & Orange) are organically grown in greenhouses in Baja and Central Mexico. They're grown specifically for Trader Joe's, and must meet our strict quality controls at every step in the growing process. Bell peppers are notoriously picky plants - they like temperatures between 70º and 84º, they require moist-but-not-waterlogged soil. Growing them in a hothouse (greenhouse) provides a level of control and consistency you just can't guarantee for field grown peppers.
We're selling each 3-pack of these generous-sized organic peppers for $3.99*. Try them in salads, as crudités, on the grill, in sandwiches or as snacks. The colors make them festive, the flavors make them satisfying, and the price makes them irresistible.
*Ounces, price and availability may vary by region. Currently Trader Joe's Tri-Color Bell Peppers are $3.99 in our West Coast and Texas stores and $4.29 in our East Coast, Midwest and Southeast stores.
