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
