During the current Covid-19 pandemic we are adhering strictly the UK governments guidelines on social distancing and safety.
Welcome to TheChilliGuy blog we are great lovers and growers of super hot chillies. We grow chillies like the Dorset Naga, the Bhut Jolokia and the Carolina Reaper. We (there are 2 of us!) love to grow chillies right here in the UK. Located in the East of England on the borders of Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk we have a wonderful climate to produce some quite amazing quality fresh chillies.
TheChilliGuy Blog – Chilli Festivals
Chilli Festivals are very popular in the UK so we are planning to attend as many of them as possible this season – if you have a Chilli related event you are welcome to send us information and a weblink – we will be delighted to back link from our site here. You can contact us here
We have been growing super hot chillies now since 2008 starting off purely as a hobby and giving any surplus to friends and family. You can buy our fresh fruit (September to December) through this site and on eBay so why not give some a try as they are great for adding to curries, soups, stews and anything that benefits for a bit of heat?
We also planning to make home-made chutneys and chilli pastes that will be available available all year whilst
We hope you will share your love of all things chilli and especially the super-hot varieties – please get in touch to share your photographs and experiences with TheChilliGuy Blog using the Contact Us form or by leaving a comment.
For the last few years we have been growing the famous Dorset Naga, Bengle Naga, Dorset Zinger, Bhut Jolokia and Fire chillies. This year we have decided to trial new chilli varieties with a view to scaling up production next year. To allow this we have had to get some land and acquire a new poly tunnel to house our growing family of chillies.
New chilli varieties sown for are:
7 Pod Brainstrain Red -awesome name!
Moruga Scorpion – (on a side note, I love the way my predictive software tries to change Moruga to morgue – the Morgue Scorpion 🙂 )
Fatalii Jigsaw ( predictive text now wants to rename Fatalii to fatal 🙂 – The Fatal Jigsaw Super Hot Chilli!)
Defcon 7 (and predictably Defcon is a Deacon Chilli .. )
It is always an amazing sight to me when the new season chilli seedlings start to appear – Our 2016 super hot Chilli Seedlings are no exception. This season the first seeds to be sown were the Dorset Naga, Bengle Naga’s, Dorset Zingers, Fire Chillies, Carolina Reaper, Bhut Jolokia Red, Bhut Jolokia White, Bhut Jolokia Chocolate, Red Scorpion, and Yellow Scorpion.
Chillies can be slow to germinate so patience is required (not easy for me!) The germination rates after 20 days are :
Our 2016 chilli season starts today and following a great 2015 with our Dorset Nagas, Bengle Nagas and Fire super-hot Chillies. We are looking forward to a great 2016 with many more new super-hot chillies added to our trials. We have added Trinidad Scorpion, Butch T Red (great name isn’t it), Naga Bhut Jolokia (the old favourite), Naga Bhut Jolokia White, Moruga Scorpion, Naga Bhut Jolokia Chocolate, Moruga Scorpion Yellow and the awesome current world record holding Carolina Reaper – what a collection of super-hot chillies.
