When should I harvest my bell peppers?

Question:

When should I harvest my bell peppers?

Answer:

Bell peppers are usually harvested when large, firm, and dark green (immature stage).  They may also be allowed to fully ripen to red, yellow, orange, or other colors.  Fully mature bell peppers are slightly sweeter and contain higher amounts of vitamins than immature green fruit.
