I've seen many different descriptors for this chili, but this is what it looks like.  Peppers go from white to red, while meandering through a rainbow of colors, including orange and purple.  The red peppers are the most mature and spiciest.

 

Cacao

Cacao trees can live for up to 100 years but are considered productive for only around 60. When the tree grows naturally from cocoa tree seeds, it has a long, deep taproot.   Plant begins to bear fruit when height reaches about 4’ tall.  

Caladium, Buck

Also known as Angel Wings or Heart of Jesus, Caladiums enjoy well-drained soil and partial shade.  Many varieties of this ornamental plant exist, with colors ranging from white to green, to deep red.  The Buck variety has a red center surrounded by a deep green border around the leaves.

Cosmos

Daisy-like flowers of the cosmos plant appear atop tall stems with lacy foliage.  Flowers are popular for indoor use and come in a variety of colors from yellow to purple.  Cutting flowers results in additional blooms.  Plant in well-drained soil and full sun.

Pandan

 

Pandanus amaryllifolius is a tropical plant commonly known simply as pandan leaves and is used widely in South Asian and Southeast Asian cooking as a flavoring.  Leaves tied in a knot give off a jasmine-like scent and add flavor when cooked with rice.  Pandan is also widely used as a flavoring for dessert, with some comparing its use to that of vanilla.
