The bell pepper (also known as sweet pepper, pepper, or capsicum) is the fruit of plants in the Grossum cultivar group of the species Capsicum annuum. There are 50 different kinds of peppers in the world, others with sweet or chili fruits. Peppers are native to Central America. At first, they were used for the production of a spice, that was named that time as Spanish pepper and its purpose was to be a substitute of the very valuable, for that time, original pepper. The cultivation of peppers, as a vegetable, began in the 17th century, but their development took place in the 19th and especially in the 20th century. Peppers are vulnerable at cold. Their planting, at the south and lowland regions of Greece, takes place in the beginning of March or April, while at the north and mountainous regions, takes place in the beginning of May or June. The well known varieties of bell peppers are the green ones from Magnesia with their sweet and fleshy fruits, the Florina peppers with their red sweet or chili fruits, the Tsouska peppers with a slightly chili flavor and a yellow-green color and the yellow pepper from Koufalia, which is cultivated in many regions of Thessaloniki and you can make a pickle of it. The dried red pepper in some regions is known as cumin.
