Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. 3 bumps = eat (3 letters in the word).

Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking. 4 bumps = cook (4 letters in the word).

This is just a bit on info I am passing on. There is a difference in the bottoms of green bell peppers. If the bottom has 4 sections, it should be used in recipes, such as stuffed peppers. If the bottom has 3 sections , it is sweeter and should be sliced and eaten raw. I always wondered about the differences.
