Bell Peppers are a great source of vitamin C. In fact, green peppers have twice the amount of vitamin C by weight than citrus fruits, and this powerful punch of vitamin C is an antioxidant that may be effective in preventing certain cancers. Bell peppers originated in Central and South America. Christopher Columbus found them growing in the West Indies, but they were not introduced into Europe until the 16th century. Bell peppers are a crop that lends themselves well to controlled condition farming practices.
Currently 4.5 Acres are under cultivation of Bell Peppers providing 120 tons per annum. The plan is to expand cultivation to 10 Acres, thereby producing 400 tons per annum in the next nine months.
The final infrastructure build-up plan involves demarcating 25 Acres of land exclusively for Bell Peppers.
