From the twisted mind of chili pepper scientist, ‘Smokin’ Ed Currie, Pepper X is so hot, that it’ll make you doubt your sanity and question all of your life choices (but in a good way).

This pepper is known by several other names including the Piri Piri, Thai chili, Bird’s Eye chili, and Bird’s Eye Chili. There are two schools of thought on how this pepper got its name. One idea is it was named for one of the prominent ways its seeds spread: through birds. Although you might think that birds would be sensitive to the heat of these chilies, that’s actually not the case. Birds can’t detect the heat from capsaicin the way people can. The other theory for how Bird’s Eye peppers got their name is that the stem of these peppers resembles a Bird’s Eye.
