We never sell imported Capsicums from Australia ever.

Capsicums are known for their pungent flavour in food, due to a plant chemical called capsaicin.

Interestingly, this is the chemical used in pepper spray for law enforcement.

Levels of capsaicin in capsicums will vary depending on a range of factors such as weather, growing conditions, & age.

It is also commonly used in mucle rub-down creams to help alleviate pain. 

Along with the above properties capsicums are a good source of Vitamin C, & contain carotenes & B vitamins.

Capsicums can be eaten raw or cooked.

Use raw in salads, cut into strips & eat with dips, or use as an edible garnish.

Dice capsicums for use on pizzas; cut into chunks for kebabs; use in pasta sauces; or add to stir fries.

Stuff with rice or a bread crumb mixture & bake.

Add roasted capsicums, either hot or cold, to salads & sandwiches.
