Green Bell Peppers are a sweet and mild variety of the capsicum family that are used world wide for their fresh flavor  vibrant color and sturdy nature. Native to Mexico and South America  the seeds of these peppers were brought to Spain in 1493  where they quickly spread to European  African and Asian countries. China is now the largest producer of these peppers.
While they are a member of the Capsiucum annuum family  Green Bell Peppers do not produce significant amounts of capsaicin  the substance that contributes the heat associated with other peppers. The “bell” in the name refers to the general shape of the peppers when full grown.
Named “pepper” by Columbus  who attributed their flavor to that of the black peppercorns. They  in fact  have no relation and were originally named “pimiento”.
Cultivated for over 9 000 years
Grows in a variety of other colors
Green Bell Peppers have a wonderful combination of tangy taste and crunchy texture. The only pepper in its family without a burning heat  it can be used more widely in recipes for their brilliant color and sweet  mild pepper flavor.
