Organic Yellow Capsicum Holland/Egypt
Certification: EU Organic
Highlights: Organic Yellow peppers are left on the plant longer than green peppers before picking, and as a result, they are sweeter. Glossy and smooth-skinned, these are 3 to 4 lobed fruits of the capsicum annum species members of the Solinaceae family. They are milder in taste than green capsicum, and so are sometimes known as sweet peppers.
Like all capsicums, yellow capsicums are a good source of beta-carotene, vitamin C and dietary fibre. They are of course also low in calories and an excellent addition to the diet of anyone wanting to lose weight.
Originating in Central America and an essential part of Mexican fajitas, they made their way into Mediterranean and Asian cuisine courtesy of the Spanish and Portuguese from New world to Old.
