White Cherry chillies

Culinary

These chillies are sweet and quite mild with thick juicy flesh. Like the 'bomb' chillies, cherries should have the core removed to leave a hollow bowl. This can then be stuffed with cream cheese or other filling and served as a hors d'oeuvre. They are also good for making salsa, and for pickling.
