Indu belongs to the small size chilli segment and has excellent colour value as measured in the American Spice Trade Association (ASTA) units and pungency as measured in Scoville heat units (SHU). In addition, Indu is a reliable plant variety with intermediate resistance to the Chilli Leaf Curl virus, which is the biggest problem faced by chilli growers.
Chillies grown using Indu seeds measure about 8 – 10 cms in length and 1 cm in breadth. They are suitable for both fresh consumption and dry purposes. Indu’s vigorous secondary branching habit and fruit bearing capacity ensure yields better than most competitors in the market.
