Chili pepper. Not black pepper.

Can also be used as slang for weiner but mostly for kids i think

Hot dog or..... ???

It's a cute word for the male genitalia.

Fun fact about past customs: When babies were born, the mother would hang peppers on the door to let the neighbors know that the newborn was male. Therefore, 고추 to refer to the male reproductive organ.

Wnat they would do to let neighbours know if the baby was a female????

I think if there was nothing hanging from the door then that would be the assumption?

Why have a capital letter on the correct option? That's not learning, it's guessing


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Staszek456

Yea, capitals giving off proper answers are dumb. Try solving the question without looking at the possible answers. This is what I do.

I think chilli is a better translation, like greg said pepper causes confusion.

Chilli with two 'l's should also be accepted.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hippietrail

This should accept all these:

  • chili
  • chilli
  • chili pepper
  • chilli pepper
  • hot chili
  • hot chilli
  • pepper

The current default is a fine choice since it's not ambiguous.

Not only are there many kinds of peppers, there are many kinds of chili peppers. I'm pretty sure what Koreans call 고추 is 'cayenne pepper'.
