Red capsicums are more mature than green, orange or yellow capsicums. They are rich in carotenoid phytonutrients and contain one and a half times more vitamin C than green capsicums.
Storage: Store capsicums in plastic bags and they will keep up to five days in a fridge. They should not be stored near ethylene-producing food such as pears or apples! Also suitable for home freezing.
Preparation: Their bright color and sweet flavor make them perfect for tossing into salads. When roasted red capsicums become silken and delicious.
