what else you should know

powdered cayenne pepper, 90M HU

Cayenne and its chili pepper relatives get their genus name of Capsicum from a Greek word that means “to bite,” referring to the hot bite of the fruit. The word “cayenne” itself is thought to come from kian, which is the name of another pepper known to the Tupi Indians that occupied what is now French Guiana and where the capital city is Cayenne. Cayenne and other chili peppers are also sometimes called Guinea spice, a corruption of the reference to its origin propagated made by 16th century explorers.
