Red Pepper

Also known as a bell pepper, sweet pepper or capsicum, they are native to Mexico, Central and South America but are now cultivated across the world including Asia and Europe. Bell peppers are 94% water and a rich source of vitamin C. Red peppers contain more vitamin C than green peppers. Bell peppers contain no capsaicin which is the active hot component in chili peppers.
