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.

Purple Ghost Scorpion
SHU approx 1,000,000
The Purple Ghost Scorpion is a newish cross originating in Guam. It is the crossing of a Purple Ghost and the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T. An unusual thing about this chilli is that while the outside ripens to a deep red, the inside quite often remains a vibrant purple! We know of no other chilli that does this. It tastes quite fruity with no bitterness. The heat is about the same as a Ghost so it’s very hot! While not quite stable yet, we love it and will grow it again!
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 :-).
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!
750,000 – 1,100,000 SHU
The 7 pot Madballz or Madballs 7 is a cross between a Trinidad Yellow 7 Pot and a Chocolate Bhut Jolokia. It is fruity and floral and has lots of heat. The pods are a great colour and get all wrinkly. A terrific chilli and well worth growing!
The Jimmy Nardello, or The Jimmy Nardello Sweet Italian Frying Pepper, now its official name, is listed in the US Ark of Taste at Slow Food, the vegetable version of the endangered species list.
Giuseppe Nardiello and his wife, Angela set sail from the port of Naples in 1887 for a new life in America, Angela carried her one-year-old daughter Anna and a handful of the pepper seeds with them. They settled in Naugatuck, Connecticut, where they raised the peppers, and eleven children. The fourth one was a son named Jimmy and the legend grew from there. Frying peppers are something that has yet to be discovered properly, in Australia at least. They taste brilliant and you can put them with anything! We now have three of the world’s best “frying peppers” available to you. Just put frying peppers in the search bar!
Aji White Fantasy
5,000 – 10,000 SHU
The Aji White Fantasy is one of the best tasting mild chilli’s around. Its thick flesh is juicy and crunchy with definite citrus tones. The fruit start a pale yellow then change to a stunning crystal white before ripening to pale yellow again. The bush does not grow large so it would be excellent in a patio pot. It also keeps setting pods for most of the year if in a warm climate. You’re going to fall in love with this one!
Orange Torpedo Rocoto
Approx. 50,000 SHU
Our very first Rocoto variety, the Orange Torpedo is one we have obtained from the PATCH ON THE BELLARINE. We love the colour, we love the shape and most importantly we love the flavour. A chilli much prized in its native Mexico City for use primarily in salsas, it has an amazing sweet apple-like flavour. The Pubescens species is quite different from other chilli species. It has hairy foliage and contains more Dihydrocapsaicin than capsaicin resulting in a different deeper and longer burn. Go on give it a go.
