The California pepper is one of the most consumed peppers worldwide. You will easily recognise it: short size, well-defined square shape and a central hollow space. We can find it in red, green, orange or yellow. At Agroponiente, we grow it sustainably throughout the year.
The California pepper is very versatile: it’s used for frying, carving or roasting. You can also grill these peppers because they have a mild and sweet flavour.
Regarding their vitamin content, peppers are rich in vitamin C, especially the red ones. In fact, these contain more than twice the amount of Vitamin C that fruits such as oranges or strawberries contain. Surprising, right? It’s time to eat bell peppers to prevent colds!
