Product Description
Introduction :
Bell pepper, also known as sweet pepper or a pepper (in the UK) and
capsicum (in Australia and New Zealand), is a cultivar group of the
species Capsicum annuum (chili pepper). Cultivars of the plant produce
fruits in different colors, including red, yellow, orange and green.
Bell peppers are sometimes grouped with less pungent pepper varieties
as "sweet peppers". Peppers are native to Mexico, Central America and
northern South America. 
Green peppers are less sweet and slightly more bitter than yellow or
orange peppers, with red bell peppers being the sweetest. The taste of
ripe peppers can also vary with growing conditions and post-harvest
storage treatment; the sweetest are fruit allowed to ripen fully on the
plant in full sunshine, while fruit harvested green and after-ripened
in storage are less sweet.
Compared to green peppers, red peppers have more vitamins and nutrients
and contain the antioxidant lycopene. The level of carotene, like
lycopene, is nine times higher in red peppers. Red peppers have twice
the vitamin C content of green peppers. Also, one large red bell pepper
contains 209 mg of vitamin C, which is almost three times the 70 mg of
an average orange.
