Ring of Fire is a hot cayenne type which is very quick to mature. We grow a lot of these on the farm and it is always the first hot chilli to ripen.
The Jalapeño (Capsicum Annuum) is probably the mostly widely know chilli variety in the world.
These peppers are traditionally picked immature (usually when about 5cm long) before they have developed any heat. You may have seen the fruits in Spain or in a Spanish Tapas bars; they are usually quickly fried in olive oil and sea salt and served hot.
The Carolina Reaper has been measured at over 2 million scoville units and is the hottest chilli we currently grow.
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.
The first 'Super' chilli!

This is the most commonly grown Habanero and one of the easiest to grow. The fruits are up to 2.5cm x 4cm and are produced on a shrubby bush up to 70cm tall x 70cm wide.
The famous Scotch Bonnet is named for its resemblance to a Tam o'shanter hat. The flavour is similar to other 'Habanero' types and the fruits are used to make hot sauces throughout the Caribbean.
This is a stunning Scotch Bonnet / Habanero type originating from Jamaica. Similar in appearance to other Habanero chillies but chocolate brown in colour. The fruits are extremely hot, up to 600,000 Scoville Heat Units. The bushes grow large with strong woody stems. Sometimes difficult to germinate, but well worth the effort.
This large mild chilli is revered in Mexico and the USA and used extensively in Mexican-style cooking.
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.
