Chili peppers originated in the Americas; and their cultivars are now grown around the world. Chili peppers have been a part of the human diet in the Americas since at least 7500 BC.
The name "Anaheim" derives from a farmer named Emilio Ortega who brought the seeds to the Anaheim area in the early 1900s. They are also called California chile or Magdalena.
