Paprika comes from an annual plant native to South America, which is now cultivated worldwide and in can become perennial where no frost occurs that reaches a height of 1 metre. The leaves are alternate, simple, ovate, and glossy, mid to deep green in colour and 5-12cm in length. The 5-6 petaled flowers are white to pale purple in colour, 8–15mm in diameter and solitary. The fruits look like berries and are 1-2cm in diameter, bright green turning to red as the fruit ripens.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that chilli peppers and paprika come from the same genus of plant? The capsicums are part of the same family of plants that give us potatoes and tomatoes known as Solanaceae. The flavour of paprika and chilli is down to the variety of chilli that is used, the way the fruits are processed, for example paprika is made mostly from the flesh of the fruit with over half of its seeds removed. Whilst chilli powders tend to contain more of the parts of the plant (seeds, placentas, calyxes, and stalks) that contains capsaicin, the heat giving chemical in this family of plants; the flesh contains less capsaicin that all the other parts.
