Chao Tian is also known as facing heaven chili as the chili fruits grows upwards towards the sky facing gravity itself. It is a pantry staple in Sichuan cuisine. We source our Chao Tian from Henan province by the Yellow River of China.
The regions hot, humid, monsoon summers are perfect for growing chili especially when cold, windy, dry winters supports the cultivation of a very sturdy plant ready to grow in the seasonal climate. It is used in the iconic dishes like Kung Pao/Gong Bao Chicken, LaZiJi (spicy chicken) and Shui Zhu Yu (water boiled fish).
