Native to American states, capsicum is now cultivated worldwide. Commonly known as bell pepper or chilli pepper, it is used for extra crunch in food and for giving a colourful appearance and a spicy flavour. It is available in green, yellow, orange and red colors.
Capsicum should be well shaped and should have a skin which is firm and shiny. Avoid those with soft spots or a shrivelled appearance.
Some of the side effects of capsicum are skin irritation, abdominal irritation and kidney damage.(3)
