I have all this information on these peppers so i will give it too.

All peppers are members of the genus Capsicum, and the family Solanaceae, which include tomatoes and eggplant. The name Capsicum comes from the Greek kapto, which means "to bite". There are 26 species of peppers categorized at present; however there is much discussion and argument involved. Most of these are only found in the wild. There are five species of domesticated peppers:
· annuum, from "annual; this includes most of the common peppers found in markets including bell peppers, jalapeños and New Mexican.
· baccatum, from "berry-like"; these are the aji peppers found commonly in South America.
· chinense, meaning "from China"; this includes the famous habanero, Scotch Bonnets, etc.
· frutescens, meaning "brushy", these are the tabasco peppers.
· pubescens, from "hairy"; these are the South American rocoto peppers.
The more common names seen in seed catalogs and in markets are usually the cultivar, or variety names. References to annuum species often include the pod type. Due to easy inbreeding between annuum, chinense, and frutescens, there are hundreds of different varieties found throughout the world.
All peppers originated in the New World. The origin seems to be in the area of Bolivia and Paraquay in South America. Wild peppers are propagated by birds, who are apparently unaffected by the heat of the fruit.
