Boriya Mirch Chilli Seeds. Boriya Mirch is a small, round, hot chilli pepper (also known as Button Chilli) that grows on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Translated from Spanish it's name means "Small Bell" or "Rattle". When dried this chilli becomes translucent and makes a rattling noise like a tattle snake - hence it is also called Rattle Snake Chilli. The plant can grow to more than 1 meter producing bright to dark red large round chiles that are prized for their pleasant overall burn they create in the mouth.
