Add yThe bird’s eye chili is small but packs quite a lot of heat. At one time it was even listed as the hottest chili in the Guinness Book of World Records but other hotter varieties of chili have since been identified. It measures around 50,000-100,000 Scoville units which is at the lower end of the range for the hotter habanero chili. Your thoughts here… (optional)



At last my Bird’s eye chili plants are starting to fruit in abundance. The plants were grown from seed collected from my “Big Sis’s” garden in Durban. These “Bird’s Eye” chilies are really hot, on a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate them a 9! With the first harvest I proceeded to make our favourite chili recipe called “Mazavaroo”, a chili paste recipe hailing from the island of Mauritius.
