Dundicut peppers are a variety of small, round, dark red chili peppers. It is the national pepper of Pakistan. Developed and grown in the Tharparkar region of Sindh, Pakistan. This pepper is commercially cultivated in Pakistan and is considered indispensable for many dishes.

Also known in Asia as lal mirch. Sold dried, Dundicuts are similar in flavor to Scotch bonnet peppers, but are not as hot. Pods are somewhat teardrop shaped and are about 1″ in diameter. A single crushed pepper will add heat and flavor to a dish for two. The heat can vary greatly.
