Capsicum & Chilli
Capsicum and chilli are two related plants that belong to the Solanacea family. Capsicum, also known as bell pepper or sweet pepper, is a mild and sweet-tasting fruit that is typically used in salads, stir-fries, and other savory dishes. Chilli, on the other hand, is a spicy fruit that is used to add heat and flavour to various dishes. Chillis are spicy due to the presence of a compound called capsaicin. Capsaicin is responsible for the heat in chili peppers and can range in intensity from mild to extremely hot.
