All chili is native to Central and South America as is believed to have arrived to the southern parts of China in the 16th century through Portuguese merchants. The seasonal hot, cold, wet and dry weather of Sichuan, Yunnan and Guizhou was perfect climate for this plant and since then many uniquely, distinct local varieties have been cultivated, in turn spreading new cultivars across the globe as Chinese immigrants brought seeds with them as they relocated to other parts of the world.
