Jalapeños belong to the Capsicum annuum species of plant from the nightshade family. Both the plant and the fruit are referred to as jalapeño, and there are other names, especially for the fruit, which indicate differences in spiciness, size and also colour. The peppery flavour of the different varieties is determined by the capsaicin, which is mainly present in the inner ribs of the fruit.
