My Account

Red Capsicums, also known as Red Peppers or Bell Peppers, are a vegetable belonging to the nightshade (Solanaceae) family. In Australia, capsicums are sold by colour – the difference between the colours is simply how ripe they are when they’re harvested! Green capsicums are the least ripe, and turn orange or yellow as they ripen, becoming sweeter. They can be eaten raw, cooked in a stir-fry, or roasted whole.

Nutritional Benefits

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.

Storage

Capsicums should be stored in the crisper section of your fridge.
