Bandung is an important producer of paprika in the country. The plant is mainly cultivated in green houses in the village of Pasirlangu in Cisarua, West Bandung Regency. The ones you see in these pictures are from a garden owned by a friend of mine.

Currently he is cultivating the red and yellow varieties. The produce are mainly sold in the local and Jakarta markets. With the expansion of the farm he is currently undertaking, he says he will soon produce enough for to be able to export the produce to Malaysia and Singapore.
