Wikipedia SummaryThe cayenne pepper is a type of Capsicum annuum. Most varieties are generally rated at 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville units.The fruits are generally dried and ground to make the powdered spice of the same name, although cayenne powder may be a blend of different types of peppers, quite often not containing cayenne peppers, and may or may not contain the seeds.Cayenne is used in cooking spicy dishes either as a powder or in its whole form. It also is possibly named for the Cayenne River.Culpeper, in his Complete Herbal from 1653, mentions cayenne pepper as a synonym for what he calls 'pepper (guinea)' By the end of the 19th century 'Guinea pepper' had come to mean bird's eye chili or piri-piri, although he refers to Capsicum peppers in general in his entry. Taxonomy == The cayenne pepper is a type of Capsicum annuum, as are bell peppers, jalapeños, pimientos, and many others. Cayenne peppers are often said to belong to the frutescens variety, but frutescens peppers are now defined as peppers which have fruit which grow upright on the bush (such as tabasco peppers), thus what is known in English as cayenne peppers are by definition not frutescens.In the 19th century, modern cayenne peppers were classified as C. longum, this name was later synonymised with C. frutescens.
