One of the most important vegetable and spice crops is the chilli (Capsicum annuum L.). This research was carried out at the RARS, Jamalpur 2019-2020 to 2020-2021 to find out the suitable variety and sowing time year-round chilli production for the demand of our country, nutrition supply and save foreign currency. All over Bangladesh, chillies are grown year-round, with the winter variety, which makes up around 70% of total production, being grown from October to April. Bangladesh has an extremely poor chilli yield because of variable rainfall, a small landmass, and ineffective fertilizer application. Due to inadequate irrigation and rainfall during the winter, output is hindered. Treatments included in the experiment were used two variety/cultivar BARI Morich-2 and commercial cultivar Bindu and three sowing time November, March and June which covers whole the year production. For year-round chilli production, November transplanting with BARI Morich-2 is preferable to other transplanting and variety. March transplanting both varieties is especially beneficial when there is a shortage of green chilli supply on the market during the early monsoon lag period. The establishment of June sowing is hindered by climate variables.
