Chilli 'Bird's Eye' Seeds - 10 Seeds

Bird's eye chili peppers, sometimes called Thai chilis, are frequently used to add spice in Southeast Asian cuisine. The small chilis grow on small bushes in hot weather climates. Raw, dried, or cooked, the small but potent peppers pack real heat and are used to add spice to dishes or to make fiery sauces.

Bird's eye chiles are small, thin, pointy peppers that are red when mature. They are green when unripe but can still be eaten, and are sometimes orange or purple depending on maturity. In the case of Thai cuisine, green peppers are typically used in green curries, while hotter, mature red peppers are used in red curries. When fresh, they often have a stem still attached and contain loose, edible seeds that are especially spicy. The peppers are affordable thanks to their low weight and can be used whole, sliced, or seeded and diced.

This very attractive plant also make quite a spectacle when grown as a conservatory or patio plant.
