RHS Chilli Fiesta Hyde Hall

RHS Chilli Fiesta Hyde Hall

While much of the attention of the Chilli loving fraternity was focused on Brighton over the weekend of September 18th & 19th, in a quiet corner of Essex the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) was holding its own Chilli Fiesta at Hyde Hall Gardens, just south of Chelmsford.

While Hyde Hall might not have the razzmatazz of Brighton, several hundred people turned out on a blustery day. They were greeted by about a dozen stalls selling all manner of Chilli sauces, salsas and marinades, seeds and established plants – this being late in the growing season.

Several of the vendors were new to me, such as Feel The Burn but while they might be new, their sauces were both fiery and flavourful. Look out for them.

And of course, being the RHS there was expert advice on hand if you were having problems with your peppers.

Okay, so not the fiesta that Brighton enjoys, but a pleasant diversion for those of us who might not want to venture ‘south of the river’.

Our many thanks to Bob the Brit (http://www.bobthebrit.net) for his article/pictures of this chilli event.
