Capsicum & Chilli

Fairbanks has an outstanding range of chilli and capsicum varieties, which include the Syngenta portfolio. Chillies and capsicum, also known as peppers, are a part of the Solanaceae family. We have an expansive range of chillies and capsicum ranging in colour, shape and size. While the chilli variety is best planted in spring and autumn, the capsicum needs warm to hot weather to ripen fully, so it is best to plant it during the New Zealand summer.

From the Capsicum to the Syngenta varieties of mini snacking varieties of chillies, our assortments of capsicum and chillies are an excellent source of colour and add nutritional value to any dish. With a strong setting ability to produce higher yields, good plant vigour and high uniformity, our selection of chilli and capsicum seeds is unlike any other.

Capsicum are a good source of antioxidants and vitamin C. Other vitamins, including A, E, K1, potassium, and folate are also provided by capsicum and chillies.

Both chillies and capsicum are world favourites and are widely used in cuisines around the globe. While capsicum is picked due to its mildly sweet taste and crunchy texture it lends to a dish, chillies are used to add spice and heat. Both chillies and capsicum can be consumed in various ways, some of which include stir-fries, soups, stews, salsa or salads- they can be baked, fried, stewed or eaten raw.
