Botany and Agriculture of Bird's Eye Cayenne Branch

Bird's eye chili, also known as "bird's eye chili" or "cayena en rama ojo de pájaro" or "prik kee noo" in Thai, is a spicy chili species belonging to the Solanaceae family. Its scientific name is Capsicum frutescens and it is native to Central and South America. The bird's eye chili bush grows up to a height of 1-1.5 meters and produces small, thin fruits about 2.5 cm long and 0.8 cm wide. The fruits are light green when young, and mature to become red. The plant needs a warm and humid climate to grow and is very resistant to pests and diseases. It can be grown in pots or in the garden, and its fruits are ideal for drying or using fresh.

Bird's Eye Cayenne Branch: Gastronomy

Bird's eye chili is very popular in Thai and Southeast Asian cuisine, where it is used to flavor and spice up a wide variety of dishes. It is a key ingredient in the preparation of Thai curry, as well as in sauces, marinades, and salads. Overall, the bird's eye chili is very spicy, with a heat level ranging from 50,000 to 100,000 Scoville units. This makes it hotter than jalapeño, but less than habanero. It is also known as piri piri, which is a variety of chili native to Africa that has spread to other countries such as Portugal, Brazil, and Mozambique.


There are various varieties of Bird's Eye Cayenne Branch, each with its own distinctive characteristics in terms of flavor, spiciness, and appearance. Some of the best-known varieties are described below:

African Piri Piri: This is the original variety of bird's eye chili, characterized by its elongated and thin shape, with a diameter of approximately 1 cm. It is very spicy and is used in the preparation of sauces and marinades.

Portuguese Piri Piri: This variety is slightly thicker than the African variety, and has a sweeter and less spicy flavor. It is mainly used in Portuguese cuisine, in dishes like the famous piri piri chicken.

Brazilian Piri Piri: This variety is larger than the previous ones, and has a slightly sweet and spicy flavor. It is used in the preparation of sauces and condiments, as well as in meat and fish dishes.

Mozambican Piri Piri: This variety is similar to the African piri piri, but has a milder and slightly fruity flavor. It is used in Mozambican cuisine, in dishes like peri peri chicken or the famous seafood dish matapa.
