Asian Birds Eye Chilli
‘A brilliant chilli for any cooking’
Asian Birds Eye Chilli is one of the most well known chilli varieties. Available in almost every supermarket.
The plant grows well in a pot to about 1.2 metre in height. However, when it is planted in the ground it can double in height.
This variety is very easy to grow and furthermore a great producer of small thin chillies. The pods are approximately 4 cm in length by 1-1.5 cm wide. First the pods start off green and end up a bright red colour, when they are fully mature. An amazing looking plant full off upwards pointing chillies. Very used in Asian dishes, pickled or in a hot sauce due to its neutral flavour. We use it together with Scotch Bonnet in our AfterBurner Chilli Sauce.
Flavour wise: Very neutral taste and that why you pickle them with white vinegar, soy sauce and salt.
Heat level: Upper mid heat, 7/15
