Where are chilies cultivated?

Chilies are found all over the world, but the largest grower and producer of chilies is India, contributing 25% of the world’s total production. Today, India is known not just for growing the most chilies, but also growing the hottest chilies on the market. The more mild capscicum varieties and blends, like paprika, chili pepper and chili powder, are primarily grown in the southwestern United States, China and Peru.

Here at Olam, we specialize in growing capsicums in New Mexico, Texas, Arizona and northern Mexico. We partner with growers in Maharashstra, Tamil Nadu, Karnatka and Andhra Pradesh, the state in India that supplies the most chilies.

Our capsicums are processed at our facilities in Las Cruces, New Mexico and Cochin, India.

Applications of bulk chilies

So, what can chilis be used for? Chilis have many applications, including:

  • Adding ancho chili powder to meat, vegetables, and beans for a moderate level of heat
  • Blending cayenne red pepper powder with vinegar to create a liquid hot sauce
  • Sprinkling chili powder alamo into a barbeque sauce, taco blend, or chili
  • Incorporating chili powder in sauces, rubs, dips and condiments
  • Include paprika in applications where you want a deep red hue

History of chilies

The history of chilies is very long — going back to 7000 B.C. Grown and cultivated as far back as 3500 years ago in North and Central America, Mexico, in particular, has long used these flavorful and spicy fruits to add heat to their food. When Columbus first traveled to the Americas, he brought a variety of spices, including chili peppers, back to Spain, where it became a common spice used in many European cuisines.

Over the years, chili plants have been cultivated to create new varieties through cross-breeding. Now, there are more than 400 different varieties of chilies found all over the world today. In 1912, Wilbur L. Scoville, a pharmacist, created a new method to measure the pungency of chilies, known as the Scoville Organoleptic Test. Today it is still the most accurate method for determining a chili’s flavor profile.
