We are located to the north of the Sunshine Coast hinterland in Queensland, Australia.
All of the varieties we grow are open-pollinated or heirloom.
We produce the seed we sell, although we will sell seed from other reputable growers while establishing a variety.
We strive to ensure good germination rates and carry out regular tests on our seed stock.
The plants used for seed collecting are grown in a greenhouse or under netting to guard against cross-pollination and keep seeds true to type.
If a problem does occur, we will work with the customer in an effort to resolve any issues; replacing seeds or refunding the sale if necessary. *Please see ‘growing tips’ and 'terms and conditions’.
There is some misidentification and conflicting information in the world of chillies. This means that the same name may be applied to more than one variety, or some varieties can be known by a number of names. We have researched extensively in an effort to accurately name the varieties we sell. In some cases, we have also listed other names that the variety may be known by.
All chillies originated in South America and have spread around the world over a number of centuries. Each variety has developed distinct traits through cultivation in a particular region. In our listings, we refer to the cultivation region in which these chillies have been grown over an extended period of time, resulting in the development of the particular traits of the variety. In regards to a recently developed strain, we generally refer to the region in which this development has taken place.
