Bell pepper

A whole and cross-section of a red bell pepper (pepper in the UK and capsicum elsewhere in the Commonwealth). This cultivar of Capsicum annuum has a recessive gene that eliminates the capsaicin in the fruit. The pepper scores zero on the Scoville scale, meaning it has none of the “heat” that other chili peppers do.
