Hi all...i'd like some advice on chilles..i have two or three plants in that produce pretty well,not sure of the name,there pretty good and hot lol however i seem to be growing the small ones,then i go to the super market and they have quite large ones that look pretty good and juicy so they must have a name as i'd like to grow some of them large ones...i live the other side of Mildura in the North West of Victoria near the N.S.W border. whatcha reckon? cheers Len.

Len - I have never grown chilies but here is my two bobs worth. I have read the smaller the chilli the hotter it is. If you want to know what kind of chilies you have or the supermarket have, then go to a few seed selling companies websites and check out the different varieties. Try Seed collection - Boondie Seeds - New Life seeds. Plenty of photos there to check.

The big ones in the supermarket are possibly jalapenos which are relatively mild. We have just grown Anaheim for the first time this year & they are very large & mild. Might be worth giving them a go (our plant was in a mixed pack from United Nurseries).
