All peppers are members of the capsicum family and are native to the Americas where they have been cultivated for thousands of years for their strong, spicy, flavour enhancing properties. Capsicum plants typically grow to 60-80cm high and are bushy, flowering, semi-perennials that are grown as annuals in cultivation.

The capsicum is a versatile crop where it is used in various cooking applications such as in salads, baked dishes, stuffed dishes, stews, pizzas, cheeses, pickles, stir fries and for stuffing olives.
