This is our second harvest of the very very hot “Siling Labuyo” Pepper. It is confused with Birds eye chili or Thai Chili.

We got a packet of these dried chili from Goa a few years back and planted the seeds.

Very easy to grow and gives good yield. This is a low maintenance plant, at least in Maharashtra.

It ranks at 80,000 to 100,000 heat units in the Scoville Scale. Birds eye chili ranks at 50,000 – 100,000 Scoville units.

Takes a lot of patience to harvest these out from the plant. I put a plate below the chili and snipped it off with a scissor. Can’t pluck with bare hands๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Once I made some cheese toast and sprinkled some finely chopped ( chopped with scissors) Labuyo Chili on the top thinking it would be tolerable and I was so so wrong ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

It’s super duper Hot!! I will dehydrate and make chili powder out of it now๐Ÿ˜

Have you tasted the Labuyo!! Let me know in the comments on how you use it?
