WHAT IS peri peri

The word pili pili comes from the word Piri piri (ˌpiːriˈpiːri/ pee-ree-pee-ree, also spelled peri peri, pili pili), also called African bird's eye chili, is a cultivar of Capsicum frutescens, one of the sources of chili pepper that grows both wild and domesticated.

It is a small member of the Capsicum genus. It grows in Malawi, South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and the tropical forests of South Sudan & the southern half of Ethiopia. It was brought in the 16th century to Sri Lanka and Goa by the Portuguese.

When Chilli Came To SRI LANKA

All chilis found around the world today have their origins in Mexico, Central America and South America. They were spread by the Spanish and the Portuguese, together with many other now common crops and fruit such as maize, tomatoes and pineapples. This is now called the Columbian Exchange. The chili varieties found in Southeast Asia today were brought there by Spanish and Portuguese colonists and traders in the 16th or 17th century.
