Homemade range of Chilli Jelly, Relishes, & Sauces
Chillis Galore are Richard (nickname Wilf) & Kathy, who started growing chillis 23 years ago inNorwich, UK, to obtain some different varieties to use in cooking. After a few years of successfully growing chillis
our website was started to share
this knowledge, and over the years it
has grown in popularity with a huge following worldwide, this led us to developing our own homemade chilli
jellies, relishes and sauces from our own kitchen. Even now all our plants are still grown in greenhouses in the back garden where we grow
different varieties each year to show and sell , and also use in our own products. The progress of each years growing can be seen in the
diary pages, for even more information you can freely register on our forum boards to participate in discussions of all topics

This may be a bit old now but if you haven't read it before it is well worth a look and guarantees a good
laugh. Read about these Hot Chilli Tales, an amusing tale from a Texan chilli
Quick History of chillis, heat scales measurement with Scoville units and species terminology, Chilli Facts, and after your harvest, do you have too many chillis to use, a few things you can do to use them
up or preserve them, roasting, freezing pickling & smoking, in cooking with chillis.
In 2007, Guinness World Records certified the Bhut Jolokia as
the world's hottest chili pepper. Since then more peppers have all surpassed the Bhut Jolokia's Scoville rating.

We have now grown chillis successfully for over 22 year, starting off with limited strains available in the UK, to the initial start of the internet where more seeds became available which we obtained from the USA. In the last few years a massive explosion of chilli growing has kicked off with enough varieties to satisfy all, from all corners of the world with mild and tasty to red hot. All this is documented in our online diary of our last 12 years going through different techniques throughout the years. Greenhouse Sensation started us of with Hydroponic growing and advanced propagators many years ago right up to date with Tom Green of Greens
Horticulture writing a section on artificial lighting, with our own update in 2010 on the up and coming lighting of LED's. In 2012 we used LED lighting for the first time in conjunction with greenlights-ledgrowlights for more information on the equipment we use.

There are a good variety of seed companies on our links page if you are looking for something different this year.
New fresh seeds should give you a better harvest and the true strain of chilli. Undecided on what to grow have a look at our varieties pages
or growing diaries which may help you decide on what to grow. Another source for seeds is Ebay, plenty to pick from on there, although you
may take the risk of old seeds with poor germination or cross fertilized seeds unless its a reputable shop.
Visit the Varieties page which is updated as we grow them each
year (last update Feb 2013) or the Links page for more details of seed companies.
