Where & how is our crop grown?

Most of our crop is currently UK grown under glass, however we are progressively branching out into warmer climates to ensure 365day per year supply.

We do regular Scoville testing of our own chillies to ensure that the heat levels are inline with the lists shown.

To place an order or make an enquiry about fresh chilli email or visit our contact us page.

Our minimum order for fresh chilli is currently 1kg. However, this can be a mix of varieties and we regularly supply chilli eating competitions.
