Details

Commonly known as the African Bird’s Eye chile (not to be confused with the Asian Bird’s Eye chile), this pepper is indigenous to sub-Saharan Africa. Piri-piri simply means "pepper-pepper" in Swahili, but was adapted as the name for this specific pepper by the Portuguese, who cultivated them in India. Often found in African recipes, notably piri-piri sauce, it is also used in Macanese cooking. These peppers come to us from our friend Farmer Pete of Seedling Farms in South Haven, MI.
