According to art, the origin of cultivation here lies again in different regions.
Capsicum annuum was bred in central or northeastern Mexico.
The other species in South America.
Capsicum baccatum comes from Bolivia and Capsicum pubescens tribes from the Andes.
The origin of Capsicum chinense lies in the Amazon region.
The origin of Capsicum frutescens could not yet be clarified, although it also seems to originate from Amazonia. Nevertheless, Central America is also an option.
Excavations in a valley near Tehuacán in Mexico revealed evidence for the planting of peppers.
It is assumed that peppers were already used as useful plants around 7000 BC.
These are still the wild forms of the plants.
Later, the pepper was refined by breeding in the period between 5200 and 3400 B.C. Further.
From this came species that were still cultivated today.
Since its discovery, peppers have continued to be cultivated by indigenous peoples.
In a work published in 2007 by Linda Perry of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., it was proven that chili was used in southwestern Ecuador around 4100 BC. The paprika differed from wild chilli by its sharpness.
