Chilli – Dad’s (辣椒) seeds

  • $7.00
Tax included.

I’m not completely sure of the variety of this chilli, but it’s one my dad has been growing for years, so it’s known to me simply as ‘dad’s’. It’s a nice, compact plant that does well in pots, and is highly productive. The most prolific chilli I’ve grown.


This plant produces small, glossy chillies around 3-4 cm in length with medium heat. We got around 150 chillies from a happy, overwintered plant. Sharing the seeds here if you’d like to give them a go as well!


Harvested chillies can be frozen to use later, or alternatively dehydrated and stored in the pantry.
