Interesting Facts

The Chilli Pepper Institute Trials took place in 2011, with the results published in February 2012. The trials tested not only for the hottest pods but also the mean average.

Some varieties fluctuated wildly in pod heat levels, others were more consistent. These three had the highest mean average. All three of these Top Pods came from the Caribbean Island of Trinidad. An island that seems to have dedicated itself to breeding super hot chillies!

Moruga Trinidad Scorpion came out top in the trials with both the hottest single pod and the highest mean average. A cross between two of the island's hottest chillies, the Moruga named after the Trinidadian town and the Scorpion, named after the critter with the legendary kick in its tail.

Chocolate Douglah came out with the highest low figure of all, making this a great bet for growing really hot chillies. It's probably a kind of Seven Pot although there is some debate about this. The chillies have a unique flavour which is extremely smokey with a sharp heat. Douglah is local slang for a person of Mixed Race.

The Seven Pot has a fearsome reputation as one of the world's hottest chillies. It reputedly gets its name from it ability to heat and flavour seven pots of curry so one pod can last you the whole week! These are amongst the easiest to grow of the super hots, early to flower and fruit for a chinense variety.

potting on chilli plants

Potting on Your Chilli Plants

Your chilli plants will arrive ready to be transplanted into their final pots. Most chillies are best suited to a 12-15 litre pot but be a bit flexible here for giants or dwarf varieties. Use a free draining compost mix to fill the pot, make a hole and pop in the plant. If you have an ordinary compost, mix with a little grit or sand. Firm down and give a good watering.

By this stage an unheated greenhouse should suffice. This is obviously dependent on the weather. Chillies don’t like the cold and shouldn’t be left unprotected if the temperature is going to go down below 10oC. If you are quick off the mark and have your chillies arriving in March, keep indoors or in a heated greenhouse until the risk of frost has passed.

Chilli plants do not like sitting in wet soil, so keep it moist but not over-wet. Feed with a seaweed feed or dedicated chilli feed at the suggested rate. Keep an eye out for any pests or problems. These are best dealt with early on. Prevention is obviously better than cure, so keep plants well spaced and well ventilated. Remove any dead leaves or rotting plant material.

In the summer months, hardier chillies can be placed outside in a sheltered spot or on a warm patio. Acclimatize them slowly, bringing them in at night for the first week or whenever the temperature threatens to drop. Chinense varieties prefer the shelter of a greenhouse and will not flourish outside. Use a cane to support the plants as they grow if necessary.

encouraging fruit

Your chilli plants will produce chillies on each of their sidestems so the more sidestems you have, the more fruit your plant will produce. You can encourage sidestems by placing plants temporarily onto their side causing them to try to grow upright by throwing out a number of sidestems.

Chillies can be pollinated by bees but failing that, they are also self-pollinating, so a gentle shake of flowers will help ensure that they set. Once your chillies start to flower, switch to a high potassium feed such as a tomato feed.

If you want a bumper crop of pods, feed at the suggested rate. However if you want to get really hot chillies, you need to stress your plants. Feed at half the suggested rate and keep letting your plants dry out, watering them only small amounts as they start to wilt. This will get you a smaller crop of superhot pods.

World of Chillies wishes you success with your chilli plants and hopes that you will enjoy growing and consuming them as much as we do!
