Chillies
For those who like things hot, look no further. Sow these indoors in a warm soil from mid April to May in trays or modules. They can either be kept indoors or moved outside if you have a sheltered spot. Chillies will put up with more temperature fluctuations than peppers. Harvest when ripe late August to October. Love chillies but don’t have lots of space then the answer is our chilli mix choices.

Hot and rich flavoured really funky fruits.  Some describe them as upside down mushrooms, others as resembling patty pan squashes, I think they look like weird bell peppers but make no mistake these have heat! Sturdy productive plants, compact and suitable for growing in pots.  Definitely a talking point.

If you just can’t wait to get started with chillies than look no further than this Italian variety. A lovely upright plant, growing to about 60cm tall, that fruits towards the top. The chillies are spinning top shaped reaching 6-7cm long with the thick flesh ripening to bright red. If you can provide steady warmth than these seeds can be started in November and overwintered for an earlier crop, or sow January to April for a mid season harvest. These wonderful ‘Dog’s Nose’ chillies can be stuffed and also make great preserves. Price for 10 seeds

A welcome return for unassuming this small green pepper which is a Spanish culinary delight.  Traditionally they are pan fried in olive oil with a little sea salt and served with beer, alternatively add them to a stir fry and play Spanish roulette as every so often Padron will produce amongst its mild chillies a hot one that is indistinguishable until eaten! "Os pementos de Padrón, uns pican e outros non" (Galician for "Padrón peppers, some are hot and some are not").

The plants may be small but what they lack in size they make up for with their prolific harvest, a happy plant can have a hundred plus chillies (no wonder it has won a coveted AGM). And the chillies themselves may look small but do not be deceived: fire by name and nature, hot & tasty Price for 10 seeds
