Description

The first thing you should know about the Birdโ€™s Eye Chili Pepper is that it is ... HOT! Thatโ€™s also the third and fifth things you should know. Small 1"-2", tapered fruit grows on a compact bush and ripens through all the showy colors of a painted bunting, green to purple to orange to red. Pungent with fruity, tropical notes and a serious blast of heat. Use this little Thai chili to add fiery flair to everything from Asian stir fries to Indian curries to South African peri-peri sauce.
