Peri Peri Zimbabwe Chilli Seeds. Hailing from Zimbabwe, these PeriPeri have made their way from Mozambique to Zimbawe where they are grown for export. The PeriPeri in Zimbabwe is known by locals as Bile Bile which is a variation to PeriPeri or Birdseye as we know it. These plants and pods look identicle to the other PeriPeri we have on offer. Taste and heat are similar. Small pods that look like Tabasco pods. Turning from green to Red but unlike the Tabasco, these remain firm and crunchy. These chillies are very much saught after for their great peppery flavour and intense lengthy burn.
