Bird Hot Chile Pepper

90-100 days. A wild Southwestern Chile Pepper also called Tepins or Chiltepins, Bird Peppers have a multitude of little round pods, borne erect on tall ornamental plants. Maturing to bright red in color and heat, Bird Chile Peppers are so named because birds love to feast on them, oblivious to the 50,000 to 100,000 Scoville units! Remember, only Habaneros are hotter, so be extra careful. The dried red pods are used as a potent spice in soup and bean dishes whereas the milder, immature green Pepper can be used in salsa. (OP.)
