Our Chilli Farm

The Chilli Experience run a Chilli Farm in Central Portugal and grow a large variety of chillies from the mild to the wild! 

Our farm is set in 3 acres of agricultural land that grows as a wild meadow throughout the spring and summer and attracts a wide variety of insect life which helps with pollinating our plants and also controlling outbreaks of aphids. 

We grow our plants as naturally as possible using water collected in our well and without using pesticides or insecticides.

In April, May and June we have a selection of chilli plants available for sale and in fruiting season we are able to offer fresh chillies that are picked on the same day.

Our 2020 grow list includes the following varieties:
