It is A birds eye or Chile de arbol, I can easily recognize because I have two. Plus Ot hiem is the birds eye by translation.

The common name for Ot Hiem with Vietnamese American cooks is tearjerker. However you will not find it for sale under this name, only ot hiem or Vietnamese chili. You will find reports of this pepper's Scoville rating being anywhere from 30,000 to ten times that, but you'll also find it missing from most Scoville scales for a reason. Being a somewhat diverse variety mostly wild and not subjected to much breeding, the heat intensity varies quite a lot from one garden to the next. And simply, it's not much available in the US, where the Scoville scale originates. At least the cultivars of Dragon chili (spicy breed of the Thai chili) clock in at a pretty consistent 100,000 SHU. No US based nurseries seem to have picked up any cultivars of of Ot Hiem as far as I can tell, making it a bit of a project to start one of these plants. You have to use somewhat mysterious seed and the results will be varied. Basically getting a good specimen is a process involving lots of trial and error. I agree on flavor, certainly, but for now I'm growing Dragon; when I want Ot Hiem peppers I just buy them at the Asian market.

Not Black Dragon or Goatweed! Devil Chilli is close translation. It's actually labelled as "Ot Hiem - Demon F1" by EWS seeds company in Vietnam. It is a form of hybrid bird's eye chilli, engineered for mass cultivation.

I think that your mystery pepper could be the Chenzo Pepper. My next door neighbours grew them last year and we really enjoyed them and were also on the hunt for what the name was.

A friend of mine from Vietnam was growing these in her backyard, she called them Vietnamese chilli's, I got a clipping of her and just planted it in a pot today, was curious about them, which bought me here, very good read thanks.

I grow these... Black Cobra Peppers. AKA Goat’s Weed peppers. Native of Venezuela. The Black Cobra variety of Capsicum annuum are also called Goat’s Weed peppers. It is one of the only pepper plants of this species that has fuzzy leaves and stems. Also unique to this plant is the multi-colored peppers, green, black and red that shoot to the sky from the tips of the stems all at once. Description/Taste The three inch-long Black Cobra chile peppers grow straight up from the olive green leaves and stems, resembling fingers stretching up to the sky. The peppers ripen from green to black to fluorescent red. Black Cobra chile peppers only maintain their dark color for a few weeks. They are edible when black and are often harvested at this stage. The taste is spicy, though not nearly as spicy as a habanero. The black color gives way to a striking red color and with it an increase in spiciness. The heat has a range of 20,000 to 40,000 Scoville units Applications Prepare Black Cobra chile peppers by removing the stem, slicing lengthwise through half the pod and remove the seeds. Chop the pepper and add to salsas or marinades for beef or chicken. Cook peppers with tomatillos, tomatoes and onions for a spicy sauce. These peppers get spicier the longer they are on the plant; once they turn red, they are much spicier. Geography/History Black Cobra chili peppers are native to Venezuela. They grow best in a warm climate, where summers are hot for an extended period of time, helping the spicy flavor develop in the fruit. In addition to being an edible plant, the color of the fruit and its fuzzy silver leaves make for popular ornamental plants in amateur gardens.

My friend, This chili pepper is called "Black Dragon pepper" It is said that is originally from Vietnam. I started growing this peppers since 1992. A vietnamiese friend from work gave me a few of those devils and save the seeds and then started growing my own plants. I hope this info solved the mistery peppers. Roberto
