    We have sifted through the hundreds of chilli seeds on the market and carefully selected these four varieties, as representative of the main tastes and styles of chilli.

    - Cayenne. This is the doyenne of chillies. It is a classic shape, has good heat and flavour and is perfect for curries and Thai dishes.

    - Jalapeno. Jalapeno is the most versatile chilli, being less intense than the cayenne and is ideal for nachos, salsa and stir fries.

    - Hungarian Hot Wax. Despite the name, this is a mild chilli that grows to a larger size than the others, making it irresistible to pop straight onto the bbq or grill.

    - Small red cherry. These fruits have thicker skins and are a little sweeter. Our favourite chilli recipe for these is poppers (filled with cream cheese).

    Please note, occasionally we may need to substitute with similar varieties.

    If you buy our chilli apron too, we can offer you a £2 discount. Enter 'chilli' into the promotional code box at the checkout.

    One of the many virtues of growing chillies is that the pests that normally attack other plants seem to give them a wide birth. I imagine it is something to do with the firey taste or possibly odour that snails and slugs have yet to develop a taste for. Even rabbits won't touch them. Their power as a deterrent does not extend to neighbouring plants though, so lettuces or cucumbers nearby will still need protection.

    My tip for growing chillies is start early. Rather like tomatoes they take time to get going and if they are to ripen before the autumn sets in they need to have germinated early, ideally before the Spring.
