Chili peppers, also known as peppers or chillies, are the fruits of plants from the genus Capsicum, members of the nightshade family, Solanaceae.

The most common chili peppers are called sweet peppers or bell peppers and originate from Mexico. Chili peppers are widely used in many cuisines to add spiciness to dishes.

Toxicity: The hotness of chili peppers is measured in Scoville heat units (SHU), which are a function of capsaicin concentration. The substance capsaicin is found in large quantities in the placental tissue (which holds the seeds) of hot chili peppers. The heat of a chili pepper is due to capsaicin and related capsaicinoids, which are alkaline compounds that act as irritants to mammals when inhaled or ingested, making chili peppers taste hot.

Peppers are so diverse that there is a bewildering array of shapes and colors. There are bell peppers, which are also called sweet peppers. There are chiles and jalapenos, which are also referred to as hot peppers. And then there are banana peppers, which have a mild flavor.

There’s a pepper out there for every taste. If you want to spice up your life with something sweet and piquant, try the red, yellow or orange bell pepper, with the red being the sweetest of them all. If you want something spicy and flavorful, try the different types of chiles or jalapenos. Or, if you just want to kick up your meal with some heat, get a jar of banana peppers from your local grocery store.

They can be eaten raw or cooked in many dishes like salsas, salads and stir-fry. The taste of bell pepper is very mild and they can be used to add color to food

Chili peppers are very complex and diversified individual fruits, but they also belong to a group of plants that is diverse and complex in its own right. They can be considered as belonging to the Solanaceae family of flowering plants. This family includes more than 2,500 different species of annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs (the exact number is still being debated by botanists).

With the exception of the potato, all chili peppers belong to the same species: Capsicum annuum. This species is divided into five different varieties: C. annuum var. annuum, C. annuum var. glabriusculum (the bell pepper), C. annuum var. pubescens (the hot Hungarian wax pepper), C. frutescens (Cayenne pepper) and C. baccatum (Tabasco pepper).

Pepper is a spice that add flavor and heat to foods. The spiciness of peppers can vary widely, ranging from bell peppers (sweet and mild) to habaneros (extremely spicy).

The term “pepper” comes from the black pepper plant, but the term is used generically to describe many different types of spices.
