Different varieties that I have not been able to categorize.
This species is the most common and extensively cultivated of the five domesticated capsicums. The species encompasses a wide variety of shapes and sizes of peppers, both mild and hot, ranging from bell peppers to chili peppers.
Although the species name annuum means 'annual' (from the Latin annus = year), the plant is not an annual.
The single flowers are white (sometimes purplish) colour.
Has its origins in ancient Peru. The varieties are usually called Aji, meaning chile pepper. Flowers are white or cream coloured, typically with a green or gold corolla.
Also know as Ulupica. It grows wild in Bolivia and Peru and is thought to be the origin progenitor of all Capsicum. It is closely related to the Rocoto (Capsicum pubescens) but grows to only 1/2 in size.
It has purple flowers, like Capsicum pubescens.
Capsicum chacoense is a species of the genus Capsicum native to South America. While it is rarely cultivated, it is native to Argentina, Bolivia, and Paraguay.
The appearance and characteristics of the plants can vary greatly. Capcisum chinense is native to Central America, the Yucatan region, and the Caribbean islands.
The flowers, as with most Capsicum species, are small and white with five petals. When it forms, the fruit varies greatly in colour and shape.
Now a synonym for Witheringia ciliata, although it has been reclassified (yet again) as Capsicum rhomboideum.
The tiny red fruits have no heat.
The species originates in Bolivia.
The small red pods are hot.
Has been reclassified as a variety of Capsicum Schottianum
Capsicum frutescens has a smaller variety of shapes compared to other Capsicum species.
Flowers are white with a greenish white or greenish yellow corolla.
The Capsicum galapagoense is an endemic species of the Galapagos Islands.
Also known as Cumari. A wild hot variety with tiny fruits, that are quite hot with a nice flavor.
This species is found primarily in Central and South America. In Mexico it is known as the Manzano pepper (which means 'apple') for its apple-shaped fruit.
The name pubescens, means hairy, which refers to the hairy leaves of this pepper. The hairiness of the leaves, along with the black seeds, distinguish this species from others.
A characteristic different from other cultivated species of the genus Capsicum is the blue-violet-colored petals, brighter in the centre. The anthers are partly purple, partly white.
A purple flower wild species native to the Rio Mantaro basin in south-central Peru.
