Hot Calabrian chilli seeds grow into a compact plant with good foliage and round, hot chillies. Calabrian chillies have a rating of 10,000 - 20,000 units on the Scoville scale of chilli heat. In Calabria in Southern Italy these chillies are traditionally stuffed with tuna and preserved in jars or olive oil.

Sow these hot Calabrian chilli seeds in Spring in a seed tray and harvest the chillies between July and October.

Once cooked, Calabrian chillies lose some of their fiery heat making them perfect for stuffing and preserving. They are also a great way of adding a mild touch of heat to side dishes such as broccoli with garlic and chilli.
