Pepper Cultivar Capsicum Annuum
Wikipedia Summaryglabriusculum is a variety of Capsicum annuum that is native to southern North America and northern South America. This variety is the most likely progenitor of the domesticated C. annuum var. Another similar-sized pepper 'Pequin' (also called 'Piquin') is often confused, the Tepin fruit is round to oval and the Pequin is oval with a point, and the leaves, stems and plant structure are very different on each plant. Tepin peppers are very hot, measuring between 50,000 and 1,628,000 Scoville units.The tepin can be hotter than the habanero or red savina, with the highest levels seen in green fruit 40-50 days after fruit set.However, since this pepper is harvested from wild stands in the Mexican desert, the heat level of the fruit can vary greatly from year to year, depending on the amount of natural rainfall that occurs during the time the fruits are forming.
