From The COR of Greater Detroit: Bell Peppers From Israel

Bell Peppers (red, yellow and orange) from Israel are now being sold in many local stores, including Kroger and Trader Joe’s and at this time are forbidden to be eaten due to the Shemitta restriction of “sefichin”. (they do not have kedushas shevi’is and may be disposed of).

Be careful to check the fine print on the package of the sticker on peppers sold loose for the country of origin.
