Exotic (hot) peppers are an essential component of cuisines throughout the world and are valued for their contribution to flavor and nutrition. The Exotic Pepper Project was led by now retired professors Albert Ayeni and Thomas Orton, and Distinguished Professor James Simon (Department of Plant Biology). Collaborators include Rutgers graduate and undergraduate students, stakeholders from the pepper sauce industry, and New Jersey ethnic crop growers.
