While I am generally in favour of subtagging, it would be insufficient here for distinguishing the 
spice from the vegetable. Tod only gave the example for the black spice. Piper nigrum and Capsicum 
are not varieties of the same thing.

That's why the original poster proposed _produce=bell_pepper_ which however seems to be AmE, so the 
BrE equivalent would be _produce=sweet_pepper_.

So the current definition would be:

* produce=pepper
   Spice (black, white, green peppercorns) harvested from the Piper nigrum plant.

* produce=sweet_pepper
   Vegetable from Capsicum annuum. Not spicy (containing insignificant amounts of Capsaicin).

* produce=chilli_pepper
   Fruit of plants from the genus Capsicum, produced for their spiciness from significant amounts of 
Capsaicin, with their heat measured on the Scoville scale.

Now you can of course add variety=Habenero;Jalpeno;Red Cubanelle etc.
