The fruit, and the spice made of spicy varieties of Capsicum annuum as well as of other Capsicum species are called chili or chilipippuri in Finnish. The spice may also be called chilijauhe. There's no clear line of distinction between paprika and chili. Also the size of the fruit counts. The large varieties are often called paprika even if they are quite hot.
