USDA develops new pepper

Peppers have all sorts of health benefits, but not everyone always likes all that heat that comes with them.

The USDA and the University of Maine have developed a pepper that might solve this problem.

The newly-engineered pepper variety offers all the health benefits, without the spicy punch.

Researchers had the goal of bringing all those antioxidants to more people.

They used traditional breeding methods to produce a pepper that is healthy, but not spicy.

At this point, the new peppers are not yet available.
