Fresh super hot chilli in Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Hi gang,

 

I have recently taken an interest in chillies and after getting through a few bottles fast* I realised this could end up becoming costly, so after seeing how easy it is to make my own, I want to try this.


However, looking online I’ve found it’s difficult to source the kind of chilies I’m interested in, e.g. Ghost, 7 pot, Reapers etc.

 

Can anyone recommend me a place where I can source fresh versions of this type of super hot chilli please?

 

*The only one that is a challenge is a 1.5 million SHU bottle made with Carolina Reapers, so I’m okay with heat.

If you want the heat, you will need to grow your own or source them from local markets (community produce markets, that is)..

Hello, you can buy sauces, spices and seeds here.

 

Cheers,

Thanks - does anyone know the markets where I might find these kind of chillies in Melbourne? I'm going to buy red habaneros from Woolworths for my first batch (as I need to get some made quickly) but I really want to source hotter strains...

Your local Bunnings should cater for all your capsaicin needs as its where I got these.

Beware of the bunnings chillies, they are not always what it says on the label.

Yep that is true. Purchase a white Buht Jolikia only to find it was a red one months later. Rang up and complained (as I intended to use it in a white sauce and all they offered as a refund of the sub $5 cost price....grrrr

If you want the "real" stuff @realysm42 id recommend going to the herb & chilli festival on Mar.14th. My sis will be there with her reaper feta along with a bunch of other fiery goodies.

Bought a ton of plants over the years from here as well and all have been good. Just posted Bunnings as its an easy option.

It has taken me about 2 years to get Australia’s hottest chilly at some cost 

That chilli is the - Trinidad Scorpion Butch Taylor

 

Just completed drying to harvest the seeds and planning to cultivate out when the heatwave in QLD finishes 

 

Looks like this

If you want super hot it's best to grow them yourself.

 

Here are some chocolate bhutlah and Trinidad scorpions i grew last year. Also grew Carolina Reaper at work under lights. All where ridiculously hot. IMG_7796.thumb.jpg.b68a68f2b90962363425c8577f5ded49.jpg

I can get my hands on some hot spray in a can, but you won't like the taste of it.

Ha I bet!

 

This stuff wouldn't be far off though "Satan's Spit" REAL nasty stuff which has caused physical burns on my skin. Great on my morning eggs!

Looks dangerous.

I just use the crushed dried chilli from the Viets for my eggs.

I’ve not ventured into this kind of realm yet and idk if I ever will, perhaps if I keep building up resistance.

 

Does it have a taste or simply add heat?

 

I’ve decided that I’ll stick with Habaneros this time around for my and sauce and grow next time. Does anyone have a link to a good growers guide please?

@Tubularbells did you plant the Basil as a companion plant, to keep fruitfly away? We've grown lots of different chilli plants over the years, but have always had problems with fruit fly in the milder to reasonably hot one, with only things like Thai Bird's Eye being more resistant to them. They even ruined a crop of Habaneros which I thought would have been OK.

No issues with fruit fly here but last two seasons had been wiped out by aphids!

 

Basil's there only for convenience although I hear garlic is a good companion plant for chilli.
