Bangalore Torpedo chilli seeds


This Indian chilli matures from a light green colour to a bright red and can tend to curve and twist a little, the plant will grow to around 1m high.


These chillies are great pickled.  You will want to wash the chillies well and prick a few holes in the flesh to let the pickling liquor do its work.
