About the product
Green peppers are younger red bell peppers. They have a mild, but unique flavour that enhances sauces, soups and stir frys.

Bell peppers are not hot due to a recessive gene that eliminates capsaicin, the compound responsible for the heat found in other peppers. Green peppers are not as sweet as other peppers, as they are harvested early, before their peak ripeness.

The three species of Capsicum (C. annuum, C. frutescens and C. chinense) all evolved from a single common ancestor of wild peppers, which date back to at least 5000 B.C. in South America. It is the original Portuguese and Spanish explorers who are credited with starting the spread of sweet peppers around the world.

About the vendor
Various Local Growers
West Coast, BC
SPUD.ca sources produce from certified organic growers whenever possible and from as close to home as possible. The current growing season means that best of these items are grown locally right now, in and around the Lower Mainland of BC.

Most of these farms will be right around the Fraser River, from Delta out to Chilliwack, but some also come from the Pemberton area. This means the farms these items are sourced from are located within the SPUD Vancouver delivery area. We like to let you know which farm it comes from whenever we can but, due to weather conditions and general availability, this week's selection is coming from multiple farms in the Lower Mainland.
