The pepper is one of the most used garden seeds throughout the world, hugely popular in it's many hot, spicy varieties as well as the multitude of sweet varieties. It is often added to salads and other raw dishes such as gazpacho, although we can also find it cooked in thousands of recipes and, of course, in powder form as paprika. They are rich in carbohydrates, vitamins and folic acid, in addition to containing minerals such as potassium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, among others.

The pepper likes medium-high temperatures (minimum of 20ºC) with low humidity, and plenty of sunlight -the more, the better. It prefers spongy, well-drained soils with abundant organic matter. Due to these growing requirements, it is widely cultivated in greenhouses, where the more stable conditions with less thermal variation are ideal for its development. They are sown in early spring and are harvested (even the green ones) around 12-14 weeks after germination.
