Granulated Green Bell Peppers are green bell peppers that have been dehydrated and then ground. Bell peppers are members of the nightshade family, which also includes eggplant, potatoes and tomatoes.
Green bell pepper is a cultivar group of the chile pepper species Capsicum annuum. To most, this boxy-shaped pepper is considered a vegetable, but like the tomato, is technically a fruit. Scientifically, a fruit develops from the ovary in the base of the plant’s flower and contains the seeds of the plant. Bell peppers are sometimes classified with other less pungent pepper varieties as “sweet peppers.”
