Red pepper/ Red chilli

By emphasizing the hard work of farmers along with training them on the new technologies, Bosorganics always collect the highest export quality red pepper/red chilli directly from them. This indispensable culinary spice is the dried fruit of a plant from the genus capsicum native to the Americas, where they have been cultivated for thousands of years. India tops the list of the largest chillies producing countries in the world, and also the leading exporter, contributing a quarter of the world's total exports. The capsicum genus has enormous varieties of chilli that differ in size, shape, colour, flavour and intensity of spicy heat. Even the name of red chilli makes us feel the nostalgia of burning hot spiciness; the bioactive component, capsaicin, is what sets our tongues on fire. Surprisingly, there is a measurement available for ranking the pungency or hotness of chilli peppers, called the Scoville scale. The chilli variety “Carolina Reaper" is named as the hottest chilli pepper in the world.
