My Chilli Plant

Hot Chilli

At work we have all been growing our own chilli plants from some seeds Jimmy gave to us.

Below is a picture of mine, affectionately called ‘Chilli Banilli’ (it was supposed to ‘Chilli Vanilli’, but I had a cold and so Jade misheard me and wrote ‘Banilli’ on the pot).

As you can see, it growing really well (the best in the office 🙂 ) and I’ve already taken half a dozen chillis off that I’m going to use to make a BBQ sauce and I should get plenty more to experiment with.

Chilli Banilli

Jimmy is growing the Trinidad Maruga Scorpian, the hottest chilli in the world at 1,500,000-2,000,000 units on the Scoville Scale (the equivilant to weapons grade pepper spray); I’m not sure what mine are but they shouldn’t be anywhere near that hot.

The Scoville Scale is below…
