The genus Capsicum (sweet peppers) belongs to ‘nightshade’ family and is a plant with a wide diversity of species and varieties. These plants are also commonly referred to as chillies, pepperoncini or peppers. The sweet pepper originally comes from South America and is grown in the USA, Brazil and throughout Europe today. The vegetable especially has many different names and varieties, all varying in size, shape, colour and level of spiciness. Most peppers contain the chemical ‘capsaicin’ in different concentrations which influences the degree of pungency. Sweet peppers usually contain less capsaicin and are therefore rather mild. Chillies on the other hand contain high concentrations and are therefore a very hot variety of pepper.
Paprika is a finely ground powder that is available in different varieties: mild, sweet, semi-sweet and rose paprika. The powder’s colour differs from orange, to light red to a striking bright red – and the same goes for all chilli powders. Depending on the type, the paprika powder can taste slightly sour, sweet or spicy. Sweet peppers (Capsicums) also vary in taste and smell. Depending on how ripe they are, either somewhat bitter, sweet and fruity or mildly pleasant. The chilli's level of spiciness ranges from pleasantly mild, piquant to fiery hot and somewhere in between. The pungency of the peppers is measured according to the Scoville scale, which ranges from 0 to 16,000,000 Scoville heat units (pure capsaicin).
TIP: small chilli peppers are hotter than larger ones.
