Capsicum frutescens, Wiri Wiri Pepper

Click to see full-size image Capsicum frutescens
Family: Solanaceae
Wiri Wiri Pepper
Origin: Guyana
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersSpice or herbEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

A variety from Guyana, the Wiri Wiri pepper is the illustrious gem; hard sought and rarely found.

Hot peppers, in general, are beautiful, regardless of shape and size. The colors are vibrant, displaying every possible shade of gorgeous red, orange, and yellow. Just looking at them can make your eyes tear and mouth water! The image alone of a hot pepper is very iconic, always resembling the spicy and the exotic.

The Wiri Wiri peppers come from the deep edges of Guyana, pushing into the Brazilian rainforest. They are the real thing, and just like anything genuine, there is nothing quite like it.

What makes it so much different than any other hot pepper grown in the garden or bought at the store?

Hot? Yes, it is important that hot peppers are, but the people who really know, know that it is not just about heat, it is about flavor! And that is exactly what makes this little red gem so special. Guyanese dinners will only take one of those meals for you to never forget! The secret of their food is the flavor, and one of the cornerstone ingredients in many of their dishes is the Wiri pepper. A traditional Guyanese Christmas dinner would be pork stuffed with course leaf thyme and Wiri peppers. The Guyanese population claim that it is not just a key ingredient to their diet, but also to why they are so good looking, live so long, and have such great skin.

Carthamus tinctorius, Safflower, Carthamine, Sallflower, Beni, Chimichanga

Safflower is a highly branched, herbaceous, thistle-like annual plant. It is commercially cultivated for vegetable oil extracted from the seeds. Plants are 12 to 59 in tall with globular flower heads having yellow, orange, or red flowers. Each branch will usually have from one to five flower heads containing 15 to 20 seeds per head. Safflower is native to arid environments having seasonal rain. It grows a deep taproot which enables it to thrive in such environments.

Safflower is one of humanity's oldest crops. Chemical analysis of ancient Egyptian textiles dated to the Twelfth Dynasty identified dyes made from safflower, and garlands made from safflowers were found in the tomb of the pharaoh Tutankhamun.

Safflower was also known as carthamine in the nineteenth century.

It is a minor crop today, with about 600,000 tons being produced commercially in more than sixty countries worldwide. India, United States, and Mexico are the leading producers, with Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, China, the Arab World, Argentina, Tanzania (Kibaigwa, Kongwa District) and Australia accounting for most of the remainder.

Traditionally, the crop was grown for its seeds, and used for coloring and flavoring foods, in medicines, and making red (carthamin) and yellow dyes, especially before cheaper aniline dyes became available. For the last fifty years or so, the plant has been cultivated mainly for the vegetable oil extracted from its seeds.

Safflower seed oil is flavorless and colorless, and nutritionally similar to sunflower oil. It is used mainly in cosmetics and as a cooking oil, in salad dressing, and for the production of margarine. It may also be taken as a nutritional supplement.

In dietary use, high-linoleic safflower oil has also been shown to increase adiponectin, a protein that helps regulate blood glucose levels and fatty-acid breakdown.

In culinary use, safflower oil compares favorably with other vegetable oils with its high smoke point.

Ancient Egyptians found the flower pleasing to the eye and included it in garlands placed on mummies. Dried safflower flowers are used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain, increase circulation, and reduce bruising.
