Also known as the 'New Mexican Chilli,' this moderately hot fruit is deep green, turning red. Very smooth fruits, 18cm long and 4cm wide on tall (50cm), productive plants that offer good foliage cover for the fruit. Excellent for stuffing.
The largest of New Mexican varieties, this chilli has pods up to 30cm long that weigh as much as 100g. Their size makes them a favourite for chilli rellenos. Plant 50cm high.
An early, bright red cherry-style chilli maturing from green to red, 5cm-wide fruits. Thick-walled chilli growing on a medium-sized plant (40cm) - perfect for pickling or stuffing with cheese as an appetizer.
Biquinho is Portuguese for little beak and the chillies on this plant can be said to resemble small bird beaks. This plant produces a mass of teardrop or pearl shaped chilli fruits which hang from the plant like small lanterns. These popular chillies are often found preserved in jars or used on pizzas.
This is a hugely popular and versatile chilli that is also very easy to grow. The plant produces an abundance of eye-catching bright red fleshy fruits (5cm round) which mature in around 60 days from potting on. They can be stuffed with cheese and baked, or used for cooking and fresh salsa.
Great tasting and odd-shaped variety from the Baccatum species - like the Aji Limon and Aji Red.
In the USA, this is a very popular general-purpose chilli. The plant produces copious conical-shaped 8cm chillies with a heat of about 5000-6000 Scoville Heat Units. Very easy to grow and gives a good supply of red or green chillies for general purpose cooking and fresh salsa.
A classic, mild-heat, American/New Mexican chilli.
The Jalapeño (Capsicum Annuum) is probably the mostly widely know chilli variety in the world.
This Jalapeño is the variety we grow at the farm from seed we collect from our crop from issolated (netted) plants.
Purple Jalapeno turns dark purple and stays that way for a long time before finally ripening to an oxblood red. The Fruits are about the same size as regular jalapeno, with the same thick walls and fiery heat. Great for use in salsas and very attractive pickled with a mixture of other jalapeno colours.
A stunning plant for a windowsill or patio. A small (30cm), spreading plant with variegated white, purple and green leaves. The 2cm rounded, glossy, deep purple peppers ripen to bright red.
