Bulk Capsicum annum/baccatum is a cousin of the famous chili plant, Capsicum frutescens. It was originally bred for use in Mexico as a spice. Today, it is grown for its edible and aromatic seeds. It is used primarily as an ornamental fruit but can also be used as a spice and herb.
Bulk Capsicum annum/baccatum is a spicy herb with a spicy and hot flavor. The name "baccatum" derives from the Spanish word "pasta", which means sauce. The dried leaves are most often sold in bunches or as dry flakes. The dried flowers and stems can be stored like other dried herbs.
It grows to about 5.5 inches tall and has a green stem and a long green leaves. The stems are dark green in color. When the flower buds are ripe for flowering, the flower is covered with small yellow flowers. The seeds are oval in shape and contain a small seed for each individual flower bud.
The dried flowers and stems are eaten as a spice, added to dishes to make them more delicious, or taken as a condiment. In Mexico, it is used as a popular chutney. It goes well with avocado, tomatoes and lime.
There are two different types of this Capsicum annum/baccatum. One is the bulk form which contains about double the amount of seeds than the deciduous type. The other is the deciduous type which has fewer seeds. The dried flowers and stems are most often used for garnishing.
