LITTLE CHILLIES – To make you cry more!

 

Locals believe the pungency of one such chilly can substitute that of which is found in 10 normal chillies – a perfect tears inducing agent! These chillies are also used in Pineapple and Mango desserts to impart an added flavour.

 

Guess, they belong are related to capsicum annuum, Family -SOLANACEAE,

This is not Capscicum annuum, it is Capscicum minimum Roxb. Its correct name is Capscicum annuum var glabriusculum (Dunal) Heiser & Pickers
