Description

      Sweet pepper (paprika, Capsicum annuum) is the name of the species of plants in the family Solanaceae, and its fruit. Pepper originates from America, where in Mexico, Colombia and Central America still exists in wild form. After the discovery of America, like many other fruit and vegetables pepper was imported into Spain and Portugal, and afterwards was spread throughout  Europe and the Middle East. Currently, pepper is cultivated on all continents, in countries with subtropical and tropical climates.

Sweet pepper is widely used in cooking. Pepper can be eaten fresh, salted, pickled, canned, fried, prepared on the grill, stuffed with meat, vegetables and other products. It is also used for cooking lecho and sauces, as an ingredient to various salads, stews and soups. It is stewed with vegetables or meat.
