Which bell peppers are better for cooking ,and or eating ,three lobe or four lobe? Answered

I would love to learn the differences between three lobe and four lobe bell peppers


I tend to gravititate towards four lobe, but for no other reason than apperance and cutting. I didnt even think to see if there was a difference between them so as far as I know, they're pretty identical.

To be honest, I can't tell the difference when prepared either way. I've heard different opinions on which one is better for cooking and which one is better for salads and which one is better for snacking... but I think it's mostly imagination. There is only one occasion when I will care whether a pepper has four lobes or three is when preparing Stuffed Bell Peppers. In that case, I usually pick a four lobed pepper that can stand up on its own.
