Akabare Khursania is a very rare variety originating from Nepal and Sikkim in India, where it is also known as Dalle Khursani. Resembling cherries, (which can sometimes elongate), the fruits have a distinct aroma and distinctive high flavour, precisely why they are so famous. Indeed, the aroma itself should make you salivate, the name Akabare Khursani translating to 'King of chillies'! Belonging to the family of one of the hottest chilli peppers in the world, this special pepper, native to Sikkim, was rightfully awarded a GI tag. (This identifies prize-winning peppers produced in the Malabar Region of Kerala State.) 100,000 to 350,000 SHU

Sowing Advice

Surface-sow or barely cover the seeds indoors, and keep moist and warm above 20C. (Peppers generally demand warmer conditions than tomatoes to germinate successfully). When sprouts appear move them to a sunny window. Set out well-developed transplants when weather is warm. Peppers need rich moist soil and warm sunny conditions to flourish. Best sown in early spring.
