A first for this year, they are asking all amateur chilli growers to enter the chilli fruit competition which will be judged by some illustrious professional growers.
The categories are:
- Longest chilli pepper
- Most scary-looking chilli
- Most unusual variety
They are also running a “Best Plant” contest – the judges will look for shape and size, leaf colour, most prolific fruiting, and general health of the plant. There is still time to sow those seeds to bring your plants to perfection in time for the September festival.
