This small oval shaped chile is sometimes called “birds eye” and grows wild in Mexico and South Texas. Like most tiny chiles, this pepper packs a punch rating at 8-9 on a scale of 1-10. Underneath that heat is a sweet, citrus like flavor.
The #1 factor that contributes to a chile's heat level is its maturity. While capsaicin is present at the beginning of the fruit's development, the amount of capsaicin increases as the chile matures.
