Capsicum Green ( 250 g )

Price ₹22

Available From Farmer FindFresh Collectives   View Farm

The fruit of most species of Capsicum contains capsaicin (methyl-n-vanillyl nonenamide), a lipophilic chemical that can produce a strong burning sensation (pungency or spiciness) in the mouth of the unaccustomed eater. Most mammals find this unpleasant, whereas birds are unaffected. The secretion of capsaicin protects the fruit from consumption by insects[29] and mammals, while the bright colors attract birds that will disperse the seeds.
