Chill plug plants (spice-types)

The spice chillies are generally small-fruited and thin-fleshed, and are usually hotter than the vegetable chillies. They are used to add heat and flavour to a dish, but contribute very little bulk. In addition, they are ideal for drying and milling into a powder. Some varieties are also very attractive and do well as houseplants as "edible ornamentals".

The varieties of spice chillies on offer (according to heat level) are:

  Spaghetti: 8,400 SHU
Joe's Long Cayenne: 22,000 SHU
Stumpy: 27,000 SHU

NuMex Twilight
