Contrary to popular belief, sweet peppers are not defined by the shape or size of their fruit. The only thing that matters is that they have no heat whatsoever. If they do, even a tiny bit, then they are chillies.

Sweet peppers are consumed world wide and feature prominently in the cooking of the States, Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean. Though not a traditional vegetable in Britain, they’ve made up for lost time and now have a permanent place in seed catalogues, green grocers and cookery books. The fruit display extraordinary versatility in the kitchen, where they can be fried, grilled, stuffed and used raw in salads.
