- 9 Months ago
Bell pepper is a large, crisp, bell-shaped fruit from the pepper family. The term "bell pepper" or "pepper" or "capsicum" is often used for any of the large bell-shaped capsicums, regardless of the color. Red capsicums are the sweetest due to their higher sugar content. Orange and yellow capsicums have almost as much sugar as the red variety, while green ones have low sugar content due to early picking. This gives them their slightly bitter taste. Capsicums are one of the most popular salad ingredients in the world. They are also cultivated as ornamental plants in many parts of the globe.
