    Product Details

    Description

    The Birds Eye or Demon chilli as it is also known covers a group of small compact chillies from all over Asia and Africa. 

    The pods on these chillies are around 1-4cm long and only around 1cm wide.  The pods will always ripen from green to red when fully mature.  These chillies can be called many different names, some used are African Birds Eye, Piri Piri or Pili Pili.

    One of the best culinary chillies to spice up your dishes. 

    Plant Care Tips

    Sow a few seeds into a tray from late January to May and cover lightly with seed compost.  Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place it on a windowsill.  Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots.  Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants.

    As the plant grows, transplant it into as large a pot as possible, determining the plant's size.  Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed.  Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
