About the product
These peppers are similar in sweetness and flavour to red peppers. Their fancy colour adds flair and fun to any recipe that calls for peppers.

Bell peppers are not hot due to a recessive gene that eliminates capsaicin, the compound responsible for the heat found in other peppers. The peppers have a fruity sweet flavor due to the fruit's increased sugar content as they are harvested at 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.
