‘An Indian Chilli from Karnataka’
Byadgi Chilli is also known as ‘Kaddi Chilli’ – which means ‘stick-like chilli’. It was named after the town of Byadagi in the Haveri district of Karnataka.
It is a famous Indian chilli and mainly grown in the Indian state of Karnataka and the annual production of Byadagi is around 21.000 kg. The chillies are grinded into powder and sold to masala manufacturers.
Byadgi grows well in a pot to about 60 cm high and it would grow bigger, if you plant it in the ground. The pods are about 10-12 cm long and 1.5 cm wide. They go from green through brown to a rich deep red, when they are fully mature.
The Byadgi has great flavour with medium heat. One of the best chillies for some non extreme Indian cooking.
