Peperoni and jalapeños belong to the Capsicum annuum species and are income from  the nightshade family. Both the plant and the fruit are called peperoni/jalapeños, though there are even more  numerous other names for the fruit to designate the hotnessspiciness,  size, and even color. The hotness  spiciness of the various pepper cultivars is determined by the amount of capsaicin, which is primarily found in the seeds and the internal membranes.
