About Chile Peppers Edit

The chile pepper, chili pepper, or chilli pepper, or simply chile, is a spicy fruit which comes from the plant Capsicum from the nightshade family, Solanaceae. The name comes from Nahuatl via the Spanish word chile.

Chile peppers and their various cultivars originate in the Americas; they are now grown around the world because they are widely used as spices (in dried form) or vegetables (fresh) in cuisine, and even as medicine.
