bird's eye chillies

  • Bird's eye chillies have a strength of 100,000 - 225,000 Scotville units depending on how they have been grown.
  • This puts them into the same hotness range as some very hot chillies for example the Habanero (Capsicum chinense Jacquin) or the Scotch bonnet (Capsicum chinense)
  • However the Bird's eye chilli is small and only one or two are typically used in any raw food recipe.
