Sweet Banana Capsicums (also known as Banana Peppers), are a vegetable belonging to the nightshade (Solanaceae) family. These are a lesser known variety of capsicum in Australia, with a typically elongated shape, and green-yellow colour. They are delicious pickled, or added to relishes and salsas for sweetness.
Capsaicin is a volatile oil in the seeds of capsicums and chillies. Per gram, capsicums contain more vitamin C than oranges! They’re also a good source of Vitamin A, B Vitamins, manganese, potassium, and fibre.
Capsicums should be stored in the crisper section of your fridge.
