“Amazing sweet smokey flavour when dried”

Mettupalayam Chilli is an extremely rare pepper that was discovered in a tiny little village Malahi near Mettupalayam in Tamil Nadu, India.

The plant grows a metre high in a pot and would grow even bigger in the ground. The Mettupalayam chilli is a great producer of pods. The pods ripen from green and to a bright red colour.

Flavour: Amazing sweet smokey flavour when dried and would be excellent as a powder.

Pod Size: 6-7 cm long x 1 cm wide

Heat level: Medium heat, 6/10

10-12 chilli seeds per pack.

    Takes a long time to reach maturity. Sharp, stingy heat concentrating on the tongue. Adds heat to a dish but not flavor. Only gave it 3* because of the long time to maturity compared to other Indian chillies like Lal Mirch which produces red pods much quicker and is way more productive than Mettupalayam.
