Welcome to the home of chilli seeds in Australia
When people think of growing chillies or chilli peppers it’s with good reason that they think of a climate that is balmy and tropical.This is where chilli seeds grow best!
Chilli Seedz is situated in Townsville, right in the middle of Tropical North Queensland. We believe it’s the perfect position for producing the healthiest and most productive chilli pepper plants on the planet!
Unlike most other Chilli growers who can only start their growing season in hot houses with artificial lighting, we can and do plant our chillies all year round using nothing but the great Aussie sun!
We started off growing a few chilli varieties and soon the obsession took over. We now grow over 200 chilli pepper varieties and harvest chilli seeds daily. We plan to expand this over the coming seasons.
We sell our plants and pods all over Townsville and surrounds and our chilli seeds all over the world. We believe our chilli seeds and seedlings to be second to none and we take care to make sure all our chilli seeds have been tested and have very high germination rates.
At this stage our plants are not isolated so there is a rare chance you may get something unexpected – cross pollination is quite rare and according to research about one in 10,000 pods becomes a cross. We keep our prices as low as is feasible to cover business running costs and pay for our addictive chilli growing hobbie. We hope you can get as much pleasure out of the wonders of growing chillies as we do.
Total Eclipse – Space Chilli (HJ 8)
Approx. 1,000 – 5,000 SHU
What a beauty is this very Sweet BULLS heart shaped pepper that will have your asking for more. The Bulls Heart has a long shelf life and is very meaty and thick. You will be amazed at how long you can store it. Delicious and productive the Bulls Pepper is one for all occasions – not too hot and sweeter than a bell pepper. Pods on average are about 6cm long and 2 cms wide with the plant growing under a meter in a pot.
If you are not a huge fan of having your body feeling like it’s on fire and everyone is pointing at you and laughing at you while you are desperately fighting for life and sculling gallons of milk….relax! The Pink Habanaro is perfect for you! It comes complete with all the Habanero flavour that everyone loves, but none of the heat! How clever is that? Very clever we think! It is very prolific as well so you will not run out when other chilli lovers want to take yours home!
Aprox. 5,000 – 10,000 SHU
Big, Beautiful and Bountiful are three words we would use to describe the Krimzon Lee. It’s thick fleshed, sweet and super big at around 20cm long and 5cms wide. The Krimzon Lee pepper is perfect roasted, fried, grilled and for making into a moderately spicy salsa. Grows around a meter high and even bigger in the ground but it will need good staking for support when it gets fruiting.
Aji Melocoton Yellow
Approx. 10,000 – 30,000 SHU
What do we have here, a yellow Aji Melocoton. First ever that we know of… Melocoton means peach in spanish so we should really call this one Aji Melocoton aka Amarillo. You can’t go wrong with baccatum’s for flavour and this one is very citrusy sweet with slight lemon undertones. Originally created by Judy at Pepperlover why not be one of the first to grow the yellow variety. The plant grows tall and gangly, needing a good staking in its first year. Super prolific with non seedy fruit that change from green to a lovely yellow. We have grown it out twice and gotten the yellow variety each time but who knows you may even get another surprise colour.
Sugar Rush Peach
100,000 – 200,000 SHU
The Sugar Rush Peach is a one of a kind and highly sought after. It is one of the Aji types from Peru. This chilli is so sweet you can almost believe you are eating a piece of tropical fruit!…well almost! It’s certainly one of the best tasting around at the moment with its sweet, citrusy crunch! As for the amount of heat, most agree it’s a bit less than a habanero. The possibilities for the Sugar Rush Peach are endless so let your imagination go wild. This is the chilli of the moment!
Big Brown Kathumby
300,000 SHU Approx
Big Brown Kathumby. It looks like a Super hot, smells like a super hot, but it’s not quite a super hot! That is to say, You can actually eat this one without wishing you were dead ten seconds later… Which makes it perfect to put in your favourite sauces if you want give some to your girlfriend to show her how clever you are! Don’t get me wrong, it’s still very hot but not lethal. They are large and have the typical brown earthiness of a super hot. It’s also a great producer. You will be very happy with this!
Well the Pimento Diomar was a very pleasant surprise from Brazil! This has got to be one of the highest yielding chillies of all time. The amount of fruit is unbelievable! It is quite ornamental, has a really cool shaped pod and is a great patio plant. Don’t let the ornamental tag fool you though, it tastes seriously good! It is very fruity and sweet with a really good kick of heat. It will be impossible to be disappointed with this one!
Approx. 800,000 SHU
The Nagabon is a great chilli and is Australian born and bred. It’s a cross between the Bih Jolokia and Scotch Bonnet that is now very stable. It has the heat balanced out by the sweetness of the Scotch Bonnet. This one is a real winner and is also a huge producer so it’s perfect for all your home made chilli sauces. The Nagabon ticks all the boxes!
80,000 – 120,000 SHU
Peruvian Giallo Arancio is a thick fleshed chilli from Peru. It is thick and juicy and quite a heavy producer. The flavour is good with what some people have described as it having a very slight coffee hint when dried. Coffee or not, this chilli is very good fresh and would be excellent smoked! Time to experiment in the kitchen!
