  3. I’m waiting for my chilli’s to turn red at the moment. A few of them have turned and I’m dying to know how hot they are, as they were an Italian variety that I’m not familiar with.
    Time to plant some as well I think. Love a good kick!

  5. I don’t generally like hot food, I can only use Nandos peri peri on chips and when I am without my K, she always wants something from my plate even when we are having the same stuff, hehe!

  6. Great read, thanks Tandy. My “threshold” for handling chilli definitely increased living in Mauritius as it is more often than not in all dishes. Here at home we have beautiful little birds eye chillis in the garden (all of one plant left) and a couple of peppadew bushes that have survived too.

  9. Very informative post, thank you. I never knew that like tomatoes and potatoes, Columbus brought chilli to the Old World. It really is unthinkable that all those cuisines you mentioned did not use chilli before that (like tomato in the Mediterranean or potatoes in Northern Europe!).

  11. Thanks Tandy for this informative post. We’re trying again to germinate our chilli seeds – some of the rarer varieties are very fussy indeed. I’m trying to grow bishop’s crown – we used to have it in the garden, but not for the last decade, so I was pretty chuffed to find the seeds again! 🙂

    • good luck! I want to plant a few more varieties of chilli when we do the next bit of retaining wall 🙂
