About

A sweet pepper named for its bell-like shape. Although referred to as a vegetable, the pepper is actually a fruit, with a glossy red-colored firm skin. Inside its thick, red flesh is an inner cavity with edible bitter seeds and a white spongy core.

Containing two very powerful antioxidants, carotenoids such as beta-carotene, red bell peppers are known to help prevent or reduce some of the symptoms caused by free radicals. They are also a very rich source of vitamins A and C.

Will keep, refrigerated, for 1-2 weeks.

Origin: Ontario Local

About

Their color is essentially a reflection of the fruit's immaturity. Firm, juicy and thick-fleshed, the Green bell pepper is less sweet and almost bitter and "green", in taste as it has not been allowed to ripen fully, and hence sweeten, on the vine.

Green bell peppers will keep for 1-2 weeks in cool, dry storage.

Vendor Info

Unico was established in 1917 to cater to the growing Mediterranean community in Toronto.  Founder Edward Pasquale’s objective was clear; he wanted to bring the "culture of Italian eating" to every Canadian table by becoming the country's leading distributor of authentic Mediterranean style ingredients and products. 

After two generations of Pasquale family ownership, Unico passed through three successive corporate ownerships.  In 1997, Unico again became a family managed business when Sun-Brite Foods Inc. purchased the company.

Unico is a national company, spanning from coast to coast, and though they specialize in Mediterranean-style food products, they are most definitely Canadian.  However, their corporate borders reach beyond Canada.  By importing resources from other countries they are able to develop a strong international network. Dealing with other countries helps Unico to better predict and prepare for new trends in the industry.
