Chile mail order to the UK

Soop Feb 3, 2009 02:08 AM

Does anyone know where I might be able to mail order a good variety of fresh chiles to the UK?

*edit* locally, all I can get is birdseye, jalapeno, and I think habanero now. Would dried chiles be ok to use?

    If you type Chili farm into google you can see a vast array of UK based chili mail order companys. Not sure where you are based but there is also a stall at Borough Market called Cool Chile Co - if you're not in London they also have online sales! They have a wide range of whole chilis available including the 8/10 on the heat scale Piquin.

    I read that Tesco are selling the hottest chili in the world now - but although i'm a total chili fan i'm not sure if I could handle that! Its called the Dorset Naga - google it you can read all about it :)

    Hope this helps!
