More Chili Facts

I thought it was nice that this video gave a background of chilies and why they are hot, not just how hot they are. The capsasin acts as a defense mechanism when bugs and other unwanted things try to get it. The capsasin (the hotness factor) helps to prevent fungus from eatting the chili. I also thought it was interesting that chilies are not always hot and can be very small even when grown in the same soil.
