We developed this quiz in honor of Cinco de Mayo, but chile enthusiasts will enjoy a heated celebration any day of the year. Chilli is the Aztec word for these fruits, which are indigenous to Central America. When Christopher Columbus discovered them in the Caribbean, he erroneously thought they were related to the black peppercorn (Piper nigrum), and called them chilli peppers. Nost hot chiles belong to the genus Capsicum frutescens L. The single word “chilli” (also spelled chili and chile) is is more correct, but “chile pepper” has remained in the vernacular and is used by more people in the U.S.
