Yad Ezra will post signs that these peppers are from Israel.
Consumers should always carefully check the sticker, bag label or original case of all produce for the country of origin. Israeli produce commonly found in stores includes red, yellow and orange bell peppers, tomatoes on the vine, citrus fruit, persimmons, red pomelos and medjool dates.
