Siling Labuyo pepper | Growing chili peppers in balcony garden

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?
