Comments on this photo


I am writing a book on the plant family Solanaceae (with the title: “Synopsis of the plant family Solanaceae”) for students. I started 3 years ago and I have estimated that I need another 3 years to finalise this ( I describe more than 2000 species and varieties). In the mean time I try to get some pictures to illustrate some of the plants. At the moment I am at the genus Capsicum describing the domestic capsicum species and its varieties and noticed you website. Is it possible to use this picture Of course I will make reference to you below the photo.

Kind regards
