Yellow bell capsicums achieve their wonderful colour simply because they left on the plant longer before picking. They are glossy, smooth-skinned, and blocky (10-12cm long by 6-10cm across). Their thick walls enclose a large hollow and segments which their seeds are attached to.
Capsicums, also known as sweet peppers, are closely related to chillies, but are sweeter and not hot to eat.
Like all capsicums, yellow capsicums are a good source of vitamins A and C and provide dietary fibre.
