Chilli Padi (or called Bird’s eye chili) is a chili pepper, a cultivar from the species Capsicum annuum, commonly found in Southeast Asia. The plant is a perennial with small, tapering fruits, often two or three, at a node. The fruits are very pungent. The flowers are greenish-white or yellowish-white. The bird’s eye chili is small, but is quite hot (piquant). It measures around 50,000–100,000 Scoville units, which is at the lower end of the range for the hotter habanero chili.
