We have trialled well over 200 chilli cultivars and landraces, selecting for suitability for UK conditions and always seeking the most interesting flavours. Some of these we have re-selected over many years (eg Jalapeño) to produce a distinct and superior strain, others we have incorporated into our breeding program. We think that we now offer the most exciting and varied range of chillies available; a feast for the connoisseur.
