Dalle Khursani is also known as 'Akabare' or 'Akabare Khursani'.

My plants were fairly variable, as might be expected from a landrace. I was anticipating round chillies rather than bullet shape, and I am now told, by someone who is familiar with it in its native environment, that it is not the true variety. I shall grow the true cultivar next year, courtesy of Ashy Moko, and compare.

This variety was too vigorous when grown in the border, but far more restrained as a pot plant. The specimen below is growing in a standard 3 litre pot.

Dalle Khursani chillies


Like the true Dalle Khursani this variety is characterised by an immediate sharp heat which fades quickly, leaving a distinctive flavour with sweet overtones.
