Giant Asian Birds Eye Chilli
“Great for pickling or making a sweet chilli sauce”
Asian Birds Eye Chilli is one of the most well known chilli varieties. Available in almost every supermarket.
A variety we have worked on to increase the size of them and now they are HUGE. We all know how long it takes to destem the normal birds eye pepper, when you want to make a chilli. Therefore Neil has increased the size of them. Same heat level, same flavour, but much bigger.
The plant grows well in a pot to about 1 metre in height. However, when it is planted in the ground it can double in height.
Easy to grow and furthermore a great producer. Compared to normal Birds Eye these pods are humongous. 7-8 cm long and 2 cm wide and start off green and ripen to bright red.
Flavour: Very neutral taste and that is why you pickle them with white vinegar, soy sauce and salt.
Heat level: Upper mid heat, 7/15
