Red Bird’s Eye Chilies (Capsicum annuum). In Uganda, chili is mainly grown in the Northern districts of Oyam, Amolatar, Gulu and Lira as well as in the North East sub region because of the favorable climatic conditions.

These also have two seasons similar to those for sesame seed and quantities are gradually improving.

Bird’s Eye Chilies are one of the hottest and thus contain some of the highest amounts of capsaicin. Capsaicin is considered highly anti-inflammatory and may benefit those suffering from inflammatory disorders, such as arthritis osteoarthritis, psoriasis, shingles and diabetic neuropathy.
