Chilli Willy is selling a pepper that many of us have know for years as the Peter Pepper, which have always been a bit of a joke as they grow into hilarious shapes, what Chilli Willy™ have done very well is packaged this up without any childish humour or saucy illustrations (Which let be frank most of us think about when we see them)

Chilli Willy Kit

Chilli Willy Kit

The package from Chilli Willy is nicely put together and includes:-

  • 6 x chilli red plastic plant pots
  • 6 x Genuine Chilli Willy seeds
  • 1 x bag of Ecosoil™ Organic compost
  • Re-usable plastic greenhouse
  • Full growing instructions

All in an easy take home container, this kit is enough to get your plants started ready to put on to larger containers after they reach about 5cm tall. earlier in 2010 the kit won an award at The National Chilli Awards in Brighton in the category for “Best Name & Label”.

The Chilli Willy Pepper is Capsicum Annuum and the variety has won many awards including Best Tasting Chilli and Most Pornographic Pepper by Organic Gardening Magazine, so when you are successful growing your plants they won’t but just a novelty they will also be very tasty.

Please note “Chilli Willy” is a registered trade mark of  Luke Carter PO Box 427, Hatfield, AL10 1DR.

Well its been a busy weekend down in Brighton, I thought I would give you all a quick recap on what went on and what to expect next year!!

Fiery Foods UK Chilli Festival at Victoria Gardens

Fiery Foods UK Chilli Festival at Victoria Gardens

Myself and Mrs Naga arrived on site at around 7:30am on the saturday, I left Mrs Naga to setup the pitch for her company ( “3G” along with the Dunk tank ( and set off to talk to some stallholders!

Of course, seeing as I got there so blooming early I was stood around watching the stallholders setup whilst chatting to a few people including Karl from scorchio (, Neil and Lawrence from Exchange coffee (, Gaby (, Tim and Lee from the cambridge chilli farm (, Mr singhs ( and of course the lovely folks at Chillipepperpete(

After a while of chatting I soon realised that things were lifting up and the whole event was about to start so I grabbed a Naga Mocha from Exchange coffee and got my arse into gear helping 3G sort their stuff out and get things ready for the punters!

Amateur Sauce Competition

Amateur Sauce Competition

As the punters flooded in and settled down I went on another wander to see the lovely people from Type 40 toys and had a little chat to them before speaking to Miranda about the days events, as it turns out we were quite close to the “Amateur sauce” competition so I sat down with ChilliPepperPete himself and Ari Hirvonen who just happens to be the Finnish Naga Eating Champion! Well, after an hour or so of tasting and trying to decide who won what category it finally came down to these results:

  • Best Presentation: Rack Of Pain – Russel Williams
  • Best Heat: The Evil One – Russel Williams
  • Best Name: The Sauce of life – Kathy Green
  • Best Taste: Devilish relish – Karen Dishington
  • Best in show: Burning Desire – Jason Stevens

Of Course on day 2 there were the Professional sauce awards, also known as the “National Chilli Awards”, I was joined on this day by Frank who is one of the organisers ( and a cool guy named Tony who runs a chilli related blog ( and the results were as follows:

Now those of you that go to the FFUK every year know full well that the main event has and always will be the chilli eating competition, videos from both the competitions on the weekend can be found here.

Usually there would only be 2 winners, one from both days but this year there were three, mainly due to the fact that on day 2 the two finalists would NOT give up, so the prize was split between them and they both walked away happy men ( well happy in the prize sense as I doubt their stomachs felt the same way!! The winners from both days were as follows:

  • Day 1: Ari Hirvonen
  • Day 2: Andy & Nakai

As always the FFUK 2010 festival was a resounding success and was indeed a very well organised event with plenty of people turning up (over 9,000) to view the shows and enjoy the sights, sounds and flavours of all the wonderful chilli products on sale! I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Miranda and Frank for organising such a momentous event and inviting me to be a judge! And a very special thankyou to Lisa and Arron for putting us up for the weekend, supplying myself and Mrs Naga with food, drink and Halo!!

I look forward to meeting you all next year and hopefully will see you all before then also, may the sauce be with you chillifanz!!!

Our great thanks to Photographer Lloyd Miller for the use of his pictures (Far better that the usual ones I take!!)
