Matt Simpson from Simpsons Seeds has just had a few media visits, you may have seen him in the Daily Mail, well he was this morning on the BBC Breakfast show as well as lots of local BBC radio stations explaining how about a new chilli they are marketing called “Katie” and how he got it to grow so hot..

Katie - Simpsons Seeds

Katie was developed by a reclusive Chillihead called Naga Nick, who passed some seeds to Matt Simpson to grow, well to Matt’s surprise Katie’s provisional tests results puts her at 1,590,000 SHU, that is over 200,000 higher that any previous UK grown chilli and while still provisional it may even get to break the current world record holder the Carolina Reaper that clocks in at 1,569,300 SHU.

At the moment Matt is sure he has set a new UK record, but it may take a while and a few more tests before he can see if he really has a chilli that can take a new world record.

In the mean time if you would like to get in on the ground floor of growing this new superhot, you will need to contact Matt at Simpsons Seeds he has the seeds packaged up ready for sale, but be quick quantities are limited.
