Capsicums are seed pods. A shiny red vegetable with crisp, moist flesh. Hollow with a seeded core. Capsicums are sweet and juicy with a mild spicy flavour. Red capsicums, being riper, are sweeter than green capsicums. Shape also varies with each variety, from the more commonly found blocky shape to a pointy capsicum. Refrigerate in the vegetable crisper. At cooler times of the year capsicums can be kept in the fruit bowl.
