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.
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!
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.
Have a look at our A-Z Chilli List – for a sneak peek at what we are growing this season.
Rebecca and Trevor sell their plants and pods all over Townsville and surrounds and believe their chilli seeds and seedlings to be second to none. We take care to make sure all our chilli seeds have been tested and have very high germination rates.
Due to our awesome climate, we have many varieties of seedlings and mature chilli plants available all year round.
Not many other chilli nurseries can manage this!
Don’t forget to check back regularly as we add more and more seed varieties throughout the season.
We have many other chilli heads to thank for their inspiration, chilli growing wisdom and down right craziness.
Check out the Hall of Pain for a few legendary chilli heads. We endeavor to add more legends soon…
BUT feel free to recommend any you think have contributed to spreading the chilli pepper love.
The chilli pepper community is a generous and welcoming one and we hope to return that generosity by providing quality chilli seeds, plants and pods both locally and abroad – at the cheapest rates possible.

Introducing our range of superhot chilli powders available in pouches of 30gms(Approx 20-30 pods per pouch). Blended without the seeds to a smooth silky powder we have 3 colour varieties to scorch the taste buds. Reaper Red is our top seller and is a deadly blend of Red chillies the like of Reapers / Morugas and Bhuts. Orange BOC is a blend of mostly Bhut Orange Copenhagen chillies and is our personal favourite (just as hot as our Reaper Red Mix). Lastly and our favourite for colour is our Yellow Mix comprising of mostly Trinidad Scorpion and Brainstrain Yellow Blends. No extra postage is charged on these pouches so there are no surprises at the checkout. We guarantee fresh vibrant chilli powder that goes a long way due to the killer heat they pack.
Devils Brain Red
Approx. 1,000,000 – 1,200.000 SHU
Another devilishly hot one. The Devils brain is a hybrid creation of the Brain Strain from Judy over at Pepperlover.com. We grew a few plants of this one and the pods colour and shape were very consistent. Meant to be up there with the Carolina Reaper heat level wise although it has a slow burn build up – so watch yourself with this sneaky one. Why it’s called the Devil’s Brain we can’t say but we love the name all the same.
Approx 5,000-10,000 SHU
The Scarlett chilli is a cross between a Purple Tiger and a Jalapeno that was originally bred by Graeme Chaplin in Western Australia. We have grown it out many times and it appears to be mostly stable. It’s truely maginificent to behold as it grows and the pods start their transformations. The green and white variegated foliage has splashes of Scarlett throughout and the pods start dark purple and transition through a range of stripey colours of violet, yellow, orange and red. This version has upward growing pods 3-4cm x 2cms in size. The Scarlett Chilli plant grows short and compact and is super easy growing. The taste is sweet and reminiscent of the Jalapeno flavour.
Jay’s Peach Ghost Scorpion
Jay’s Peach Ghost Scorpion is a winner if you are chasing incredible heat. The cross of a Ghost Chilli and a Trinidad Scorpion by Jay Weaver presents us with this gnarly peach coloured Chilli! It is now about 7 generations old so getting very stable. A bit milder in flavour than the Ghost is nice and the slightly floral and sweet flavour is very good. At about 900,000 SHU, it’s running with the big boys and not to be taken lightly. Jay’s Peach Ghost Scorpion is on most hardcore chilli growers list for a good reason!
Moruga Scorpion Yellow
Approx 800,000 – 1,000,000 SHU
If you love the Trinidad Moruga Red then we think you will love the yellow variety even more. From what we have been told it’s a natural occurring variant of the Moruga Red being slightly sweeter with a definite citrusy tang to it(if you can taste this past the heat that is). Of the all the superhots the flavour of this one is a standout. Pod size is respectable but a tad smaller than the red variety. A special one for the serious chilli head – so what are you waiting for :-).
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.
The WAL 7, or Wicked Ass Little 7 pot is one of the greats from the stable of the famous Butch Taylor. It’s a cross of a 7 pot Jonah and the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T, so we knew it was bound to be ridiculously hot…..and we were not disappointed! While having a classic, fruity 7 pot flavour, it also has enough heat to make you question why you would even GROW a chilli that could make SATAN cry like a baby! Ironically enough, that is exactly WHY we love to grow it! Another one for the “I must be mad” list. Just do it.
Approx 1,200,000 SHU
Clocking in at a respectable 1.2 million SHU’s the Moruga is up there with the hottest. The heat builds slowly so be careful! The bush will grow quite tall in the ground and is a great producer. The fruit is a great shape too! The Moruga should be in all chilli lovers collections.
The Carolina Reaper is the mother of all super hot chillies. It has been rated as the world’s hottest chilli pepper by Guinness World Records since August 7, 2013. It averages 1,569,300 on the Scoville Scale with peak levels of over 2,200,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). The original crossbreed was between a Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper), a former world record holder, and a Red Habanero chilli pepper. For hardcore chilliheads this is the Holy Grail, the Head Honcho, the baddest, meanest ‘rip your throat out, tear your tongue off, smash you in the face with a half melted shovel’ chilli that has ever graced the face of the Earth. Get yourself a Carolina Reaper. You are mad if ya’ don’t!
Helix Nebula – Space Chilli (HJ 5)
Approx. 6,000-10,000 SHU
This is one of the tastiest space chillies and is not quite as big as the space chilli number 6 but comes very close. Again very prolific, juicy and sweet just perfect to add to a salad, on a pizza or in a mild salsa. Bendy in shape with twisting and turning in all directions. Not many can brag that they have space chillies – be one of the first.
“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.”
