About Us

It all started when I had gotten a recipe for Mexican red salsa from a friend of mine. For the dish, I bought a load of chili peppers in the local supermarket. The recipe said that I should remove the seeds from the hot peppers before using the peppers in the salsa. I thought it would be a shame to throw those seeds away, so I dried them and stored them.

At some point, I decided to see if I could make them germinate and grow actual plants from them. This worked out with great success. As far as I can remember, most of the seeds germinated, and the resulting plants produced quite some chilies.

Yet, there was one thing that bothered me. The plants looked dead-ugly. The branches were skewed and grew in all directions. Therefore, I chose to look for an online seller of chili seeds and ordered many different varieties. The resulting plants were all beautiful, as hot pepper plants should be. Since then, I have grown several dozen varieties from seeds, including from my own collected seeds.
