Chili Pepper

Chili peppers, despite their fiery ahotnessa are one of very popular spices known for medicinal and health benefiting properties. The chili is actually a fruit pod from the plant belonging to the nightshade family of solanaceae, within the genus; capsicum. Some common members of nightshade family are tomato, aubergine, potato, etc.
Several cultivars of peppers are grown all around the world. The chili plant is native to central american region where it was used as the chief spice ingredients in mexican cuisine for centuries. It was introduced to the rest of the world by spanish and portuguese explorers during 16th and 17th centuries and now grown widely in many parts of the world as an important commercial crop.
Chili plant is a perennial small shrub with woody stem growing up to a meter height and bears white colored flowers. The pods are very variable in size, shape, color, and pungency. Depending on the cultivar type, they range from the mild, fleshy, mexican bell peppers to the tiny, fiery, finger-like chili peppers, commonly grown in indian subcontinent. The hotness of chili is measured in ascoville heat unitsa (shu).
Chilies are excellent source of vitamin, a, b, c and e with minerals like molybdenum, manganese, folate, potassium, thiamin, and copper.
Chili contains seven times more vitamin c than orange. Red peppers are the belle of the ball at any buffet table. Crisp and incredibly sweet, these ladies in red are an easy sell to anyone who is not fond of vegetables. The only limiting factor is that they can be costly during winter, but now that itas july, we can look forward to eating more inexpensive local peppers. Ever since its introduction to india in 1498, chilies have been included in ayurvedic medicines and used as tonic to ward off many diseases.
On the scoville scale, a sweet bell pepper scores 0, a jalapea plus-minus o pepper around 2,500-4,000 units, and a mexican habaa plus-minus eros have 200,000 to 500,000 units. Interiorly, each fruit features numerous tiny, white, or cream colored, circular and flat seeds.
The seeds are actually clinging around the central white-placenta. To harvest, chilies can be picked up while they are green or when they reach complete maturity and dried in the plant. Usually, the fruits are picked up by hand when they are matured and turned red. They are then left to dry, which causes them to shrivel.
Chilies have a strong spicy taste that comes to them from the active alkaloid compounds; capsaicin, capsanthin and capsorubin.
