Why is my pepper green and not red?

Most peppers are green or light yellow before they turn yellow, orange or red. In cooler climates or during a cool season, it takes longer for a pepper to change color than in warmer climates or during a hot season. It can take two to four weeks for a pepper to change color when it reaches its mature size.
