Our Chillis

We grow chillis that range from the mildest to the hottest in the world. 

Each year we like to mix it up and experiment with new varieties from around the world. 

Here are our chillis for this season.

From America, this chilli is more known for its shape than its taste, said to resemble a penis.  Yep, you read correctly, a penis.  Hence why it’s also known as the ‘penis pepper’.   We’ve grown this one for curiosity sake, now we need to work out what to do with it.  Keep it clean people.
