Where & how is our crop grown?

Our crop is grown in 3 locations. Most of our superhot crop is currently UK grown under glass. We’ve been progressively branching out into warmer climates to ensure 365day per year supply. Since 2017 we’ve grown Scotch Bonnet, Bird Eye (fresh & dried) and Yellow Habanero in Rwanda (East Africa).

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

Our seed stock is supplied by accredited seed producers and we never reuse our seed to ensure 100% fidelity.
