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.
50,000 – 100,000 SHU
The Royal Gold chilli is a native of Peru and produces quite a lot of pods for a bush that is not very big! If that’s not enough, the fruit is sweet and hot and has a hint of passion fruit or apricot flavour! These are great for salsa and salad. Royal Gold would also make a really good powder. A very good chilli!
500,000 – 650,000 SHU
Collectors of rare and unusual chillies will love this one. The Orange Frutgum will astound and delight growers no matter how it produces. A relatively unstable chilli variety, this one is said to be a cross between a Purple Frutgum and an Orange Bubblegum. We obtained seeds from the one and only Alice Lennard who grows the most amazing chillies. Have a go at growing this one and see what you get. For us it was a delight of purple pods slowly turning to a stunning orange. It has an orange bleed up the stem making it a Bubblegum stand out. But don’t let it’s prettiness fool you, this one packs a punch when it comes to heat.
Aji Fantasy Peach
5,000 – 10,000 SHU
The Aji Peach Fantasy is probably our favourite Fantasy variety for taste. We think it has a real mellow melon flavour. Ours didn’t grow very star shaped but it was very sweet with a mild bite at the placenta like the other Aji Fantasy varieties. It has thick juicy flesh with a great crunch making it great to eat straight off the plant. The fruit start a translucent white then slowly ripen to peach. The bush does not grow large so it would be excellent in a patio pot. It sets masses of fruit for most of the year and did we mention it LOOKS GREAT Too.
30,000 – 50,000 SHU
Who loves the Cayenne chilli pepper? Everyone of course! The Portuguese, in their wisdom, distributed the Cayenne throughout the world back in the 15th century and we are very glad they did! It’s probably the most versatile of all the mild chillies. There would not be many people that have not used the red Cayenne to cook with……BUT WAIT! The Golden Cayenne is here! Stunning colour and slightly hotter than the red one, this chilli has style! They are large and super easy to grow. You need this for everyday cooking!
Solar Flare- Space Chilli (HJ 3)
5,000 – 10,000 SHU
The Solar Flare is out of this world for size and colour. It’s become one of our favourite Space Chillies. With its neon yellow fruit growing up to 20cms long it’s a real stand out in the garden. It has a medium fleshed wall that is juicy and sweet but not screaming hot, making it a good all rounder in the kitchen. If you’ve grown the other Space Chilli Varieties you just simply have to add this to your collection.

“For many decades work has been going on by the Chinese who have been sending seeds into orbit on satellites exposing them to zero gravity. It has become apparent that the trip into space is creating higher yields, bigger produce, and an increase in the levels of nutrients in the resulting fruit.”
The mythical Purple Reaper is here! We have been looking forward to this one for a long time and we know you guys have too! Ok, we know it’s not completely stable yet but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun to grow, right? Having said that, the pheno is surprisingly good and you will get a lot of great purple pods with awesome stingers which will eventually ripen to red. We know what you are thinking and YES, the Purple Reaper IS Unbelievably HOT! So hot we thought being burned at the stake would be a pleasant alternative. These will go fast so don’t miss out!
Choc Bhut x 7 Pot Yellow
1,000,000 aprox SHU
There are many hybrid Chillies being produced at the moment, but not a lot of them are as good as this. The Chocolate Bhut x Yellow 7 pot certainly stands out! It was crossed By Grant Hustler a few years ago and we were lucky enough to get it from a well-known grower in NSW. It has that great Naga flavour with no bitterness and an insane amount of heat! The pods are very large and elongated, typical of Bhut. This cross is practically stable and we feel this we be very popular in the near future!
Naga Viper Neon
Approx 1000,000 SHU
The Naga Viper Neon glows like no other chilli we have grown ! The original Naga Viper is said to be a 3 way cross between the Trinidad Scorpion, Bhut Jolokia and Naga Morich. With that sort of heritage you know it’s going to hurt. The fruit have a very thin wall and grow to approximately 3cms wide by 5cms long. Plants grow to about a meter high in a large pot.
SBS Chocolate Demon Hab
One of our favourite Habanero types is the SBS Demon Hab. Now we present it to in the Chocolate variety! It tastes exactly like chocolate!….actually it does not taste like chocolate at all, but it got your attention! What it does taste like is rich and fruity. It is also fiery hot so will not let you down if you love to burn. If you love the original SBS Demon, you will love this too!
