A while ago one of my friends told me that bell peppers (the red, yellow green ones most commonly for sale in Canada) and jalapeno peppers were actually the same species. (So are cayenne, poblano, and pepperoncini!)
Today after making some white tea and procrastinating, I also found that the same plants produce
- white, green, oolong and black tea
- black and green olives
- black, green and white peppercorns
To be fair, in some cases these are technically different varieties of the same species; anyway, I am curious to know if any other common foods would fit this list.
