Description: Chillies come from a short lived perennial bushy herb that is a cultivar of the Capsicum frutescens species of chili peppers. They are native to tropical American but are cultivated all over the temperate world especially in Africa and India. In colder climates they are treated as an annual plant. They grow to a height of 2 metres and have a bushy habit; the leaves are oblong-ovate to ovate-lanceolate in shape, 3- 10cm in length and medium green in colour. The flowers appear in clusters or singularly dependant on the cultivar and are greenish-white to yellowish-green in colour, stalked and 8-9mm in diameter. Flowers give rise to fruits which are elliptically conical to lanceoloid in shape and 10-50mm in length, initially yellowish green ripening to red.

SUGGESTED USEWhole chillies are the perfect ingredient for Indian, Mexican and Thai dishes where you need heat and flavour and a perfect stand by for when you have no fresh chillies for your recipe. The longer a dish is cooked with chillies in it, the spicier the finished dish will be, add whole chillies to pickles to add spicy heat, a few dried whole chillies added to olive oil and left to infuse makes a delicious chilli flavoured oil for using for stir fries and roasts. Make sure you remove the whole chilli before serving the dish, unless you like lots of spice.
