Turn up the heat by growing your own chillies
Growing your own chillies is a great way to explore new and unusual varieties that you can’t find in supermarkets. Easy to grow, chillies are both productive and attractive so they’re ideal for small spaces. The Scoville Scale is used to mark the chilli’s heat, which comes from an oil in the chilli called capsaicin. As the highest concentration of capsaicin is in the seeds and ‘ribs’ you can tame the heat by removing these. At Homebase we have 14 chilli varieties from mild to super-hot, including one of the best known chillies, Scotch Bonnet and new varieties like Hot Chocolate Habanero and Hungarian Hot Wax. For an easy way to get started look out for our ready-to-pick chillies in hanging pots and troughs.
