Green pepper

Green pepper (also known as sweet pepper or bell pepper) is a mild pepper of the genus Capsicum. They can be green, red, yellow or orange, depending when harvested. Specifically, green peppers are unripened bell peppers. Peppers were grown in Central and South America in pre-Columbian times. Pepper seeds were later carried to Spain in 1493 and from there spread to other European and Asian countries.
