The Jwala is the most popular chile in India, adding great flavor and spice to many Indian dishes. The word “Jwala” means “Volcano” in Hindi, and they are commonly found in the Gujarat region of India. The peppers start out light green and ripen to red, and can be used fresh or dried.

They grow to about 4 inches in length with wrinkled skin, and resemble a slightly curved finger. The plants are very productive, and can be grown easily in pots or in a garden.


  1. I’m trying to find red finger peppers to make pimento Salgado to use in several Portuguese dishes. Are these the same as Jwala!

    REPLY: Darlene, if you can find Jwala peppers, those will work great, though I’ve seen many people call different types of peppers “finger peppers”. — Mike from Chili Pepper Madness
