Baccatum, annum, chinense, etc
I notice a lot of people on the list list the species classification of their pepper varieties. I keep wondering why? What does that tell an individual? What is the significance? For the average, hobbyist, grower, does it really matter? I personally couldn't tell you the species classification of any of the varieties that I grow. Am I being naive? Should I care? I suppose there are subtle traits to each classification but all I have ever really worried about is the taste and heat levels.
