Are red peppers more mild than yellow peppers?

If you are talking about bell peppers, yellow is supposed to be milder than red. A green bell pepper, if left on the plant will turn either yellow or red ( depending on the variety. ) Myself, I haven't noticed much difference between yellow and red. And I prefer the green for flavor . . . but allow a few to go to yellow or red for color.

Why do red and yellow bell peppers cost more than green bell peppers?

The green pepper is harvested before completely ripening. The reason for the price difference between colored and green peppers is the amount of spoilage that occurs as you allow peppers to ripen. Ripened peppers have a very short shelf life compared to green. I think there is a problem inherent in the question. I have noticed that in America, the question makes sense, but in Europe, typically all colors of bell peppers are lumped together at the same price. I have always assumed this was due to the above statement, where in the US the price difference is due to the general nature of distribution and supply demand incorporating shelf life, where as, in Europe there is not as much market force, since most food is grown/sold somewhat locally, and the pressure is not that, since all the produce is typically 'fresh'. More feedback welcomed.

Green bell peppers are fairly easy to grow. They need warm temperatures (at least 70F). Give them an inch or two of water per week, more if you live in a very hot climate. They can be grown in the ground or in pots. If you live in a cold climate, they can even be grown inside if you can provide adequate light. You may want to support larger plants with a stake.

Is there capsicum in black peppercorns?

No. Capsicum plants produce fruits like chili peppers, bell peppers, and others. Peppercorns are more like berries and are not in the same family as capsicum plants.Capsicum plants have a substance that causes great heat called "capsascin". Peppercorns have a heat-producing substance called "piperazine".Black peppercorns are the dried unripe fruit of an Indian native, the Piper negrum vine; green peppercorns are the same fruit, differently processed in order to retain their green color. White peppercorns are the seed with the outer fruit removed.The Piper negrum, or black pepper vine, is a member of the Piperaceae family and isn't related to any of the capsicum family; the genus Capsicum - which includes bell peppers (also known as capsicums) and chili peppers is a member of the family Solanaceae.
