Cayenne pepper is a bright red powder with high heat and a touch of fruitiness.

History of cayenne pepper

Cayenne pepper is a type of capsicum annuum, similar to bell peppers and jalapenos. The genus is in the nightshade family, solanaceae. It is believed that the name was derived from either the city Cayenne in French Guiana, which also has a river in its territory with the same name, or from the Tupi language, an Indian tribe in South America. 

By the 1500s, as a result of the spice trade, cayenne was one of the most popular spices in the world.
