What makes red peppers red?

I'd think lycopene would make red peppers red, since it makes red tomatoes red, and peppers and tomatoes are in the same family. However websites give conflicting information. One sight says red peppers are one of the fruits that do not contain lycopene, but some other sites say they do.
