We’ve arranged 10 popular chillies from the mild to the seriously hot on a simple scale. Starting at 1 with the mildest variety, with each step up the scale the heat of the chilli doubles in intensity.
Having grown all of these from seed we can report on how each variety performed, how they taste and just how hot they really are. So read along and if it takes your fancy why not try growing some of the chillies for yourself. How far up the scale can you go?
