A true standout amongst its Indian counterparts, the Bangalore Torpedo Chilli is renowned for its impressive yields.
This variety of chilli is able to reach a height of up to one meter in a pot and is larger when grown in the ground. Its wide and bushy nature produces an abundance of 10-12 cm long pods with a transition from light green to a vibrant red at full maturity. Occasional twisting may occur, although the majority remain bent.
Moderate spiciness, Bangalore Torpedo Chilli is suited for most dishes and can be used in salads or used to bring a hint of heat to a stir-fry.
Overall the Bangalore Torpedo Chilli is a great plant to have in your chilli collection. We love cooking with these chillies and find they have a distinctive similar taste to black pepper when cooked in dishes.
Heat Level (Scoville Rating)
Medium (30,000-50,000 SHU)
Reaching up to 13cm in length and 1cm in width, Bangalore Torpedo Chilli pods mature from light green to a vibrant red colour upon fully maturing, exhibiting traits of curling or twisting such as a pig's tail.

Bangalore Torpedo Chilli will require some space to grow as this plant tends to spread out unless trained. Its spreading growth habit makes it easy to maintain and allows for a larger overall yield of chillies.
Cooking & Eating
For the pickling of the chillies start by washing them thoroughly, then puncturing the flesh with a few holes to make the pickling liquor's job easier. Pack as many chillies as you can into a sanitized jar to enable individual chilli-pulling later. Prepare your pickling liquor by combining 500ml water, 500ml vinegar and 2 teaspoons of non-iodised salt.

From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
