Green pepper plants... red pepper plants... yellow pepper plants
I always have people tell me that Green and Red and Yellow Peppers are all different plants. Obviously there are many cultivars, which have desired crops but... I would say that peppers have an unripe stage which is usually dark green to yellowish green, sometimes pale yellow while ripe peppers ripen to red, bright yellow, orange, etc...
So am I being stubborn to say that the terms green, red, and yellow pepper plant are vague and kinda confusing unless you clarify what you mean? Or maybe I'm the one confused?
My father for example claims there is a difference between a red pepper plant and a green pepper plant. "One makes green peppers, while the other makes red peppers". He also calls a green bell that matures to yellow as a yellow pepper plant, while a banana pepper plant is a yellow pepper plant also. To make thinks even more confusing he calls any light green unripe pepper a yellow pepper. How are you supposed to communicate?
