Bird’s Eye Chili

The African Bird’s Eye Chili is called ‘Pilipili kichaa’ or ‘pilipili hoho’ in Swahili, which roughly translates to the ‘crazy hot chili’. Our Bird’s Eye Chilies are among the spiciest chilies in the world. The bush-like plant grows in the natural spice forests of Pemba. Our Organic Bird’s Eye Chili are gently dried, keeping its bright red color as well as its intense, hot aroma.
