Multicoloured Bird’s Eye
“Colour change with a flame-like illusion”
This multicoloured version of the Asian Bird’s Eye is a unique chilli gem in the variety – a pride in any garden. Asian Bird’s Eye Chilli is one of the most well known chilli varieties and is available in almost every supermarket. Now you can have a gorgeous variation of this famous chilli.
The plant grows really well in a pot and if you plant it in the ground, it will get big and bushy.
Furthermore, it is easy to grow and an amazing producer of chillies. The pods are approximately 5 cm in length and 2 cm wide. The change of colours of the pods is a chapter of itself. The pods start of purple, and then they change through to a blotchy pink, to orange. Some of the pods are almost yellow with a beautiful red colour coming through, giving an almost flame-like illusion.
When the pods are ready to be picked they have a bright red colour and have a beautiful upward pointing shape.
This Multicoloured Bird’s Eye varies in flavour from the normal Asian Bird’s Eye. It has a delicious sweet flavour.
We can recommend this chilli in Asian dishes, pickled in white vinegar with lime and sugar, or in a sweet chilli sauce due to its sweet flavour. We use the Asian Bird’s Eye together with Scotch Bonnet in our AfterBurner Chilli Sauce.
Flavour wise: Delicate sweet taste.
Heat level: Upper mid heat, 8/15
