According to Euroresidentes, cayenne pepper has nothing to do with pepper. In fact its name is born of the mistake or mistake made by Columbus upon his arrival in America. The word AJI comes from Quechua (spicy fruit). When it was extended to the north the Mexican Aztecs called them Chile and when Columbus arrived, did not realize that it was a hot pepper (chili or pepper), he thought that it was the pepper so desired by the Spaniards and that they brought from the East. So he called it Cayenne Pepper equivocally.
