Capsicum, also known as Bell Pepper or even Simla Mirch, is a vegetable belonging to the Nightshade family of plants that also includes tomatoes, potatoes, and brinjals. Red capsicum or bell pepper is basically the completely ripened and mature form of green capsicum. They are the sweetest of all bell peppers and have a mild and a fruity-tangy taste. An excellent source of antioxidants specially carotenoids, red bell peppers have twice the amount of Vitamin C than the green capsicum.. This quality helps with giving a solid boost to the immune system while preventing the risk of Type 2 diabetes and cadiovascular diseases.

Also rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin B, minerals like manganese, and other anti-inflammatory nutrients they possess potential anti-cancer benefits. Those looking to manage weight should include this in their diet without second thoughts.

Red capsicum can be consumed in a variety of ways. It can be had anytime during the day for any meal in grilled, roasted, steamed, sauteed, or stuffed form. It can also be included in salads, soups, and burritos to make them look more colorful and taste even better.
Growing guide for Capsicum Red Seeds

Planting instructions

Start planting seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the end of spring and before it starts to get warm. Keep the seeds warm for germination.

Sow three capsicum seeds in a pot, and thin out the weakest seedling after the seeds have sprouted. Let the remaining two seeds grow as one plant so that the peppers remain protected from excessive sunlight.

A week before transplanting, introduce fertilizer or aged compost in your garden soil.

Transplant seedlings outdoors when frost is no longer a threat. Sow them 18 to 24 inches apart (but keep paired plants in close proximity.)

Put two or three match sticks in the hollow with each plant, along with almost a teaspoon of fertilizer. The match sticks provide sulfur to the plants.
