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: To make smoked paprika, first the peppers are dried and then put into a wood smoker, usually oak wood is used as it imparts a unique flavour, the peppers are then smoked slowly for days to give them the flavour we all know and love, the smoked peppers are then ground into fine powder.
Ingredients: Naturally smoked ground fruit of Capsicum annuum.
