Citrus paradisi Grapefruit. Now popular as a breakfast dish, this mildly bitter, acidic fruit is one of the largest citrus fruits. It is of relatively recent origin and is thought to be a chance hybrid between two other Citrus spp. The name ‘grapefruit’ was apparently used for the first time in Jamaica in 1814, but its etymology is obscure. Citrus reticulata Mandarin, or tangerine. Often known as the ‘loose-skinned’ oranges because of their easy peeling, these fruits are used mainly as a dessert.

Cantaloup See: Cucumis melo. Capsicum spp. When Columbus reached the Americas, he believed he had arrived in India, and he caused more confusion in European languages than any other person by introducing terms such as ‘Indians’, ‘West Indies’, ‘India rubber’, ‘Indian corn’ (maize), and ‘red pepper’. He was looking for black pepper (Piper nigrum) but all he found were chilli peppers, otherwise known as red, green, sweet, and hot peppers, cayenne, Tabasco, and paprika, which are all members of the genus Capsicum.

Consumers 1. A term in economics: purchasers of market produce. Consumers are a significant factor in the selforganising food production system because they determine which items sell best. For this reason, they are also a significant factor in self-organising crop improvement. 2. A term in evolution: one of the three primary groups of living organism, the others being producers and reducers. Consumers obtain their nutrients from other living organisms, and they include all herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, and parasites.
