Granulated Green Bell Peppers are green bell peppers that have been dehydrated and then ground. Bell peppers are members of the nightshade family, which also includes eggplant, potatoes and tomatoes.

Green bell pepper is a cultivar group of the chile pepper species Capsicum annuum. To most, this boxy-shaped pepper is considered a vegetable, but like the tomato, is technically a fruit. Scientifically, a fruit develops from the ovary in the base of the plant's flower and contains the seeds of the plant. Bell peppers are sometimes classified with other less pungent pepper varieties as "sweet peppers."


History and Cultivation

Chile Peppers are native to Mexico, Central America and northern South America. Excavations of prehistoric Peruvian sites have discovered that these ancient South Americans flavored their foods with bell peppers more than 6,000 years ago.

The earliest recording of the term "Bell Pepper" dates back to the late 1600's where Lionel Wafer, a Welsh explorer, wrote about them in his book "A New Voyage and Description of the Isthmus of America" as he explored the Caribbean as a doctor on a ship.

In horticulture, cultivars are a group of plants of the same species that have been selected and bred deliberately to produce specific characteristics (i.e. flavor, color, hardiness to growing conditions, etc.). Different cultivars of the bell pepper plant produce different color fruit. There are at least 15 cultivars of bell peppers including the most common green, orange, red and yellow as well as some harder to find such as brown (also called chocolate), purple and white (also called vanilla).

All sweet bell peppers begin green and their color changes as they ripen. Green bell peppers are fully developed but are harvested before they start to change colors.

It is not true that bell peppers with 3 lobes are female and those with 4 lobes are male. Bell Pepper plants have complete flowers which means that each flower contains both female and male parts. The number of lobes is actually related to the specific variety of pepper.  There are cultivars of peppers that produce 2, 3-4, or 3-5 lobes.  The 4 lobed 'bell' pepper have historically been more popular in this country, so plants have been breed for this characteristic.

Granulated dried peppers Both the Granulated Green and Red Peppers are excellent. The Green Peppers add a great taste to any dish such as a stew or scrambled eggs etc. The Red Peppers are sweet to the taste and have a very mild red pepper smell. I like using them in both fresh and dried cured sausage. Both have their place in my spice cabinet. Highly recommend them as well as any spices from Spices, Inc.

best spices and herbs the best thing about dried herbs and spices are the freshness and stable shelf life, something you can get with fresh herbs. Also the dried herbs have a robust flavor. The most difficult aspect of dry herbs and spices is finding them. I found all that I wanted in spice inc. goooood job
