Bell peppers… please clue me in here!

Bell peppers… please clue me in here!

Forgive me if this is a ridiculous question that shows my inexperience with veggie plants but... I've found conflicting info repeatedly when it comes to bell pepper plants. Are red bell peppers just "green" bell peppers that were allowed to mature on the plant? Or are they two different things? Without even thinking about this, and because I love red bell peppers, I planted what was labeled as a "sweet red" bell pepper plant in addition to my regular "green" bell pepper plants. Am I being fooled here or do red & green peppers come from different plants? I feel silly.... help me here... please! haha!
