You think that's something? Just wait until you learn about bell peppers.

Seriously between that and now beans I'm convinced there are actually only like five different types of vegetables.

If it makes you feel any better, all the food you eat is just different levels of processed sunlight

Oh I went down that rabbit hole when I was growing jalepeños a couple years ago. Started crossbreeding them with every pepper I could get my hands on.

I don’t know much about bell peppers. I’m guessing the yellow ones are African, green europe, blue America?


EERsFan4Life t1_j298kr0 wrote

They are all the exact same plant. They change color the longer they are allowed to ripen. green > yellow > orange > red.


OSCgal t1_j2a19d0 wrote

Yes and no. Green bell peppers are underripe. But the final color depends on the variety. A red bell pepper doesn't turn yellow or orange, just directly to red. Yes, it looks odd!

Purple peppers and white peppers also exist.

Source: my parents like to grow them.

Also, dogs are all the same species.

then why do i love pinto and kidney beans but hate green beans


forksofpower t1_j27k74q wrote

It's all about form factor. Pinto and Kidney have a nice skin that holds in the starchy goodness.

Green beans melt and spew out their guts.

Try just lightly steamed fresh green beans


Zorkdork t1_j2ao1e5 wrote

bite one to try it and just when it feels soft and kind of squeaky between your teeth, toss them in a pan with some butter, slivered almonds and dried cranberries.


BillTowne t1_j27f0q4 wrote

I don't think you meant to list green beans. You wanted wax beens.


Hanginon t1_j27qfid wrote

My Aunt would grow green beans and let them mature on the plant, then pick them after the pods dried and shell the beans out. She would have a winter's supply of small white dried beans not unlike Great Northern beans.


Zemi99 OP t1_j27grry wrote

Nope definitely green beans like the ones you get from a can, they are the immature sprouts of the same species.


yargleisheretobargle t1_j27pwyd wrote

The first paragraph of the article reads:

>Phaseolus vulgaris, the common bean,[3] is a herbaceous annual plant grown worldwide for its edible dry seeds or green, unripe pods.

The words "green, unripe pods" contains a link to the Wikipedia article on green beans.

Also if you cook them incorrectly you can get really sick


AliensStoleMuhBrains t1_j2b00ph wrote

Reminds me of how many varieties of plant are derived from cabbage. (Broccoli, Cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprout, etc). I hate them all


brokenwound t1_j2bcy29 wrote

One bean to rule them all.
