The Pequin pepper is a pea-sized fireball, nicknamed, the Bird Pepper. This is due to the chile being bite-sized for birds! Real clever right!? Bird peppers are a quarter of an inch wide, which makes these the perfect snacking pepper for birds AND humans! Bird peppers are relatively easy to germinate, but patience is tested as some seeds can take anywhere from 2 weeks to over 1 month to germinate. Take it from us, this pepper is well worth the wait!
RECOMMENDED USES: The pequin's flavor is relatively citrusy and nutty. These peppers work great in soups, salsas, and other sauces! We recommend you try your hand at pickling them! You won't be disappointed.
