Welcome to TheChilliGuy Blog

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.

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

New Chilli Varieties Sown

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:

  1. 7 Pod Brainstrain Red -awesome name!
  2. Guntur Sannam
  3. Katie
  4. Kashmiri Mirch
  5. Burmese Naga
  6. Moruga Scorpion – (on a side note, I love the way my predictive software tries to change Moruga to morgue – the Morgue Scorpion 🙂 )
  7. Fatalii Jigsaw ( predictive text now wants to rename Fatalii to fatal 🙂 – The Fatal Jigsaw Super Hot Chilli!)
  8. Defcon 7 (and predictably Defcon is a Deacon Chilli .. )
  9. 7 Pot Chaguanas
