Hot news

Welcome to our Hot news blog. We will publish articles to celebrate the amazing gift of nature – chilli. From chilli of the month to showcasing our growers, we also have a section to cover anything interesting about chillies.

It’s one small step for man, one giant leap for chilli peppers.

Whilst looking at the jalapeño, we looked at interesting chilli facts and it seems that chillies will be the first fruiting to be grown in space.  NASA are looking to grow the Espanola chilli pepper on the International Space Station and it will be the first fruiting plant in space. As we know, chillies are high in vitamin C and will act as a supplement to all the ‘cardboard’ space food that the astronauts eat.

Not a chilli we stock but great to the see the chilli message out there in space.
