The botany of the guacamole mix
Garlic, whose botanical name is Allium sativum, comes from the family Liliaceae. This perennial plant is composed of a bulb made up of cloves enclosed in membranes. Garlic can reach up to one meter in height.
Cayenne pepper is one of the most powerful peppers in the world. Also called Pili-pili, this red pepper is harvested in Uganda, the "pearl of Africa".
Its scientific name is Capsicum frutescens and belongs to the family Solanaceae, like paprika. It is also grown in Madagascar, Congo, and Zanzibar.
The paprika in this mix comes from the region of Zitava in Slovakia. Its botanical name is Capsicum annuum and belongs to the family Solanaceae, just like peppers and chili peppers. It has been traditionally cultivated in Slovakia for over 100 years. Paprika, also known as sweet pepper, is native to Colombia and the southern United States.
Coriander, Coriandrum sativum, is a plant in the Apiaceae family. Coriander is an aromatic plant that grows in various areas and is used in numerous culinary preparations, especially in Asia, Latin America, and Mediterranean cuisine.
Cumin, with the botanical name Cuminum cyminum, comes from the Apiaceae family, just like parsley. Originating from the Middle East, it is mainly cultivated in the Mediterranean basin. Cumin was initially a spice for smoking or used to prepare dishes.
The plant is about 30 cm high. The seeds are harvested when they mature, in September or October. After harvesting, the stems are dried in the sun for two to three days and then beaten to separate the seeds, which are the famous cumin we know. To obtain our cumin powder, the seeds are ground after drying for simple and flavorful use in cooking.
