Common in many cuisines, chili peppers are used to add heat and flavor. Whether you grate it over risottos, pastas or tacos, chili gives every dish a fiery aroma. But not all of them are as hot as many people think. Chili peppers belong to the paprika family [Capsicum] and from the red organic birds eye chili [Capsicum Frutescens] you get the well-known tongue-tingling heat.
Our organic birds eye chili originates from Uganda and each plant produces numerous hot pods. With 90.000-120.000 heat units on the Scoville scale, it’s among the world’s hottest chilies. The sharpness is intense and direct, and the taste is similar to Thai chili. Perfect for hot Asian dishes and your home-made BBQ sauce.
