Chilli Plugs & Plants

World’s Hottest

Pre-order for 2020 with 20% Off

Prior to the rise in popularity of the superhots, these chillies would have widely been known as the world’s hottest. They are still have extreme heat by most people’s standards, with a single Habanero being sufficient for a really hot curry or chilli con carne. The world’s favourite hot chillies all have intense fruity favours to offer, as well as their heat.

Our plants are all planted extra early, which is important for the chinense varieties which have a long growing season. You will need a greenhouse, conservatory or sunny windowsill for these chillies to flourish.

World of Chillies take great pride in our healthy, happy plants and we always replace if there is a problem in the first couple of weeks.

If your plants don't reach you in tip top condition, or a problem develops in the first couple of weeks, just send us a quick photo. We will try to help and get replacements out to you.

We love our plants and we want you to love them too!

Our Biodegradable Packing Pledge

World of Chillies is committed to reducing the amount of plastics we use in our packaging. It is obviously very important to us that plants arrive in perfect condition so we have spent quite some time researching alternatives to plastic that are secure and and environmentally friendly.

Check with your Chilli Plug and Plant suppliers how much plastic they use to dispatch your plants and encourage them to switch to biodegradable alternatives where possible.

Plug Plant Packaging

Made from 100% Breakdown PET, which is designed to be recycled. Please put the packaging out in your correct recycling bin.

However, huge amounts of recyclable packaging still finds its way into landfill. Breakdown PET has the added advantage that it will break down within a few years instead of hundreds.

This packaging is also produced in the UK which cuts down on carbon emissions from freight.

Packaging is also designed to fit through your letterbox. We stock packaging for 6, 12 and 18 plugs, all of which will fit through your letterbox.

Plug Outer Packaging

We use two types of Mailer Bags for our Chilli Plugs. Our preferred Bags are made from 100% Potato Starch. However, these are available in only one size which does not fit all our plug containers. The second Mailer Bag we stock is still 100% Biodegradable, made from Virgin Polymer with a biodegradable additive.

Documents Enclosed Wallets

We have switched to biodegradable documents wallets; they might seem like a very small item but over the course of a year, they can really add up!

Plant Packaging

Our plant packaging is made from 100% recycled PET and is also fully recyclable, so please dispose of in your recycling bins.

We are still teaching for fully biodegradable options but they don't seem to be available just yet.

Outer Plant Packaging

We use single wall cardboard boxes for the outer packaging of our plants, which is of course fully biodegradable.

Where possible we reuse boxes that have been sent to us.

Outer Seed Packaging

We have stopped using jiffy bubblewrap padded envelopes and switched to strong, cardboard envelopes. These do not contain any plastics and are fully biodegradable.

More changes to come…

We pledge to continue to find ways to reduce our plastic packaging and reduce our carbon footprint. Like you, we care about the environment and the long term impact of our business.
