30 BIRDS EYE CHILI PEPPER (Chiltepin Pepper) Capsicum Frutescens Vegetable Seeds
COLOR: Green to Orange to RedHARVEST: 80 DaysPLANT HEIGHT: 48 - 72" . . . PLANT SPACING: 24 - 36"LIGHT REQUIREMENTS: Sun . . . SOIL / WATER: AverageThe Birds Eye Chili Pepper is very hot measuring 50,000-100,000 SHUs which is almost as hot as a Habanero Pepper. They get their name because of their shape and because they are widely spread by birds (although I cant imagine how a bird could eat these hot peppers!). These peppers are used as a spice to give dishes a fiery zing or to flavor vinegar. The leaves of the plant can also be eaten as a vegetable. It is a very ornamental pepper, and its juice can be made into a homemade insect repellent when it is mixed with water.
