Cayenne Fruit (Capsicum annuum) is the fruit of the chili plant. Chili grows in many areas of the world, but is thought to have originated in South and Central America. The Capitol city of French Guiana is named Cayenne, and the fruit is named after this city. It has been used by humans for centuries, and seeds have been found in ancient fossil human feces and strewn on cave floors from as early as 7000 BC. The long lived people known as the Hunzas in Asia, use Cayenne as a major food source, and a smaller species has also been found in the Hawaiian Islands since 1897.
Cayenne Fruit has been used for its spicy taste, and is considered a health supporting herb throughout the many civilizations where it is recognized. It is a common spice used in cooking and may be added to almost any meal to ‘spice it up’.
