Multi-Coloured Capsicum (BellPeppers)

Look what I found on the supermarket shelves???

I was captivated with the various colours in a bag of capsicum or also known as bell pepper and different bags have different colour combination. I can't resist picking up one. On the bag it has a label that said "Compost Grown"... what does that means? Organic? I don't think so cos they isn't any organic label on it. Maybe grown using compost prepared by the growers.

Check out how colourful they are...

Frankly speaking, it was my first encounter with a dark purple and light yellowish green. I was very fascinated by them. The inner portion of the dark purple capsicum is green in colour!! Whoa... paiseh, me very sua koo hahaha... ("Sorry I'm such a country pumpkin" in Hokkien literally).

I like the colour of the plate and the purple capsicum, nice contrast. G.C stands for Grace Cup which is an organic farm.
