Indian food is incomplete without a pinch of chilli; hence this spice is grown on a large scale in India. Other than increasing the spiciness of food, chilli helps in boosting immunity as well as curing various infections. But did you know that there is a state to which you owe this spice ? Yes, Andhra Pradesh is the largest producer of chilli in India and contributes to ¼ of the total chilli production in the country, followed by Maharashtra and Karnataka. The favorable conditions for chilli cultivation in Andhra Pradesh are as follows :
Chilli needs an average climate of around 25 degree Celsius as the blossom and fruit of this spice droops in case of unavailability of enough humidity. To your surprise, this is the average temperature of Andhra Pradesh, thus making it the ideal place to grow Chilli.
Black soil is the ultimate soil to grow Chillies as it has a great tendency to lock the moisture, which is a pre-requisite for chilli farming. A large area under farming in Andhra Pradesh is only covered by black soils, hence this crop can be sown in almost every part of the state.
Chilli is a quite delicate plant and can droop if not provided enough moisture. Andhra Pradesh receives a good rainfall every year round and thus the Chilli crop yield in the region is quite higher than any other state in the country.
