What does this mean?

Post by pdh0224 » Mon Nov 01, 2004 3:11 am

Dear teacher,

The simple green sauce, Don Juan says, is made from only two ingredients: tomatillos and chili peron, an intensely spicy chili that is similar in shape (like miniature bell pepper) to the even spicier chili habanero and comes in red, orange or yellow varieties.

Q : What does "comes in" mean in the sentence? I think it refers to "consist of" What do you think?

All the best,

It means 'is available (for purchase)'.
