Capsicum baccatum is one of the most important chili peppers in South America, since this region is considered to be the center of origin and diversity of this species. In Brazil, C. baccatum has been widely explored by family farmers and there are different local names for each fruit phenotype, such as cambuci and dedo-de-moça (lady’s finger). Although very popular among farmers and consumers, C. baccatum has been less extensively studied than other Capsicum species.
