Also known as 'bell pepper' or 'sweet pepper'. These colorful crunchy vegetables are native to tropical America and became known in Europe and Asia only after the voyages of Columbus and other early explorers. 

Capsicums are used in salads, dishes sauces and can be stuffed, available all year round. 

They can be green, red, orange, yellow, brown or purplish-black in several different shapes: squat and bell-like, rectangular or tapering.  The riper the fruit, especially the red varieties, the higher the content of vitamin C, other vitamins and minerals.  

Capsicums are used raw in salads; also stir-fried, sauteed, baked, grilled or stuffed.  Finely chopped they are used in salsas and sauces.
