Effect of four light regimes of exposition (all-day, only morning, only afternoon, and all-day shaded) on piquin pepper (Capsicum annuum L. var. aviculare) growth and yield was studied in Río Bravo, Tamaulipas, in northeastern Mexico during 2001-2002. Sunlightshading conditions were created by placing potted piquin plants under or next to flamboyant trees. Direct sunlight and subsequent higher temperatures, particularly during afternoon, reduced piquin growth and yield, probably related to evolution of piquin growing under shade of trees and shrubs in its natural habitat. Growth and yield was higher with none and morning sunlight. This information is important for piquin potential exploitation in intercropping systems with perennial crops
