Product Description

 Don’t be fooled by its size.  This tiny, tic-tac-sized chile packs a punch.  Bushy plants grow to about 1.5 ft in diameter and are covered in 1/4 – 1/2 in. red scorchers.  These chiles make cooking with spice easy.  Want a big batch of chili mild?  Add one Texas Bird’s Eye.  Want it medium?  Add two.  Hot? Add three or as many as your poor stomach can handle.  A great variety for containers, will be covered in fruit no matter what size container you grow it in.
