America is the native place for capsicum, where the wild species still are met. After America had been discovered, capsicums were delivered to Spain & Portugal, wherefrom was expanded all over Europe & to the Middle East. Nowadays the capsicum is cultivated throughout all the continents in the countries with subtropical & tropical climate.

This useful vegetable is well-known on the Russian market. Some varieties of sweet pepper are grown successfully in the Southern districts of Russia.

But the main part takes the importing production. Russia imported 159 938 tons of capsicum in 2014. The share of this vegetable in total vegetable import makes 6,6%. The capsicums are shipped in Russia from Turkey, Israel, China, Netherlands, Spain & Egypt.
