Can Guinea Pigs Eat Purple Peppers?

Here's a tongue-twister for you: Can a pack of peckish piggies polish off a pile of purple pepper pieces?

We're going to answer that tongue-twister in today's food review! We've previously reviewed red, orange, yellow and green peppers, so I think this we may be running out of bell peppers to review. As we've mentioned in our previous reviews, most bell peppers start out as immature, green peppers, and eventually turn into sweeter, red peppers when they mature, with orange and yellow being intermediate stages. So how do purple peppers fit into this? Well, from what we've read, "They start off purple and then eventually turn red, but it takes a long time." And that would make sense, since these peppers aren't very sweet at all, just like green peppers. Therefore, in terms of feeding frequency, we've going to recommend you treat these like green peppers, which means you can feed us purple peppers almost daily.

Looks tasty!
Let me at them!
Whoever lets me at the plate first, I'll support as the dominant pig!
Hey, that actually worked! I'll have to remember that trick.
I think we've loved every type of bell pepper we've tried so far, and purple peppers are no different. 5/5 stars!
