Bell pepper var. Tequila

The worldwide production of peppers & chillies seems ever-increasing, the worlds largest producer is China with over 16,000,000* tonnes grown per year, production in China has grown 54% since 2000. Mexico is the number 2 by volume but a long way behind at just over 2,300,000 tonnes, a surprise to me was that Turkey was the number 3 producer at just over 2,000,000 tonnes, followed by Indonesia, Spain and the USA. (source pepperstoday.com)
