Experiment on growing pepper started on ISS

American astronaut Megan MacArthur said on her Twitter that pepper was grown on board the International Space Station for the first time.

“The Plant Habitat-04 experiment started today! We are growing pepper for the first time in space – a difficult task due to the long germination and growth cycles. But it is a great source of vitamin C and a seasoning!” – she wrote on Twitter.

At the same time, MacArthur did not explain what kind of pepper is grown on the ISS.
