Yes, the peppers will mature to red. (Other pepper varieties mature to orange, yellow, brown, and purple, but they all start out green when immature.) How fast it happens depends on the variety of pepper and the weather -- hot, sunny weather will speed up ripening, cool weather will slow it down. Expect it to take a few weeks for them to ripen. (In the meantime, you can enjoy a green pepper or two if you can spare them!)
