Dalle Khursani Chilli
‘Delicious chilli from Nepal’
Dalle Khursani Chilli is a unique and rare chilli from Nepal. Widely used for pickling.
The plant grows well in a pot to about 1 meter in height, and looks like a little cherry tree. Very easy to grow and is a great producer of small pods.
The pods start of green and end up a bright red colour, when they are fully mature. The texture of the chilli is soft and squeezy like the Serrano Pepper. So very different from other chillies.
Delicious sweet flavour and a great heat level.
