What's the difference in taste between green and red Bird's Eye Chillies?

Great first question. Welcome to the site. – hobodave Aug 29 '10 at 19:22

This is pretty much the same throughout the pepper family. The green chilis have "green" flavors - underripe, metallic, grassy. The ripe, red chilis develop more rounded, fruity flavors. You can just think of the difference between green and red bell peppers as a basic guide.
