*Whilst this is the proper name of this pepper, it is also one of several names for the african bird’s eye, most correctly known as piri piri. Both are frutescens-type chillies but, beyond that, I know of no relation. Do not confuse this pair.

**This value represents the heat rating that I would expect to give to a sauce using this pepper as its main ingredient. Other ingredients or particularly high purity may result in a slightly stronger sauce, while lower concentrations will yeild a weaker one and other products may vary.
