You may know capsicum as a vegetable but is, in fact, a fruit. Capsicum, along with bell peppers, is native to South America and belongs to the nightshade family, with brinjals. You can pop it in a grill and enjoy it charred or bite into it raw to enjoy the tangy-spiciness. This water-rich and low-calorie food is great for those on a weight-loss journey or on a health-conscious diet. Capsicum is known to improve eye-sight and even prevent anaemia. Green capsicum has a more bitter flavor profile. The yellow variety is sweeter, with the sweetest being red capsicum.
