New pepper engineered without the painful bite

Some like it hot., some like it spicy.

The creators of a new pepper say this one's got the kick you expect in a hot pepper, but minus the painful bite.

The USDA and the University of Maine developed the new pepper.
They say it has all of the heat and health benefits of typical hot peppers but not the extreme smell.
That means this new pepper may be more marketable for pharmaceuticals and food production.
Small quantities of the new seeds are now available from the USDA for research purposes.
