Imagine there were a bunch of facts about peppers you were completely ignorant of. Sounds crazy right? We're pepper-heads all the way. Well, that's what lifestyle blogger @callmeamye thought too, before someone informed her that different colored peppers are actually just the same species of pepper at different stages of ripeness.
