Howdy and welcome the the Chilli Ranch.  Here you can find everything you need to know about growing, cooking, and preserving hot peppers.

We grew our first Jalapeno chillies in our back garden in San Antonio, Texas in 1994.  Our passion, and seeds, came to England when we returned here in 1996 and began growing them in Joanna’s parents commercial cucumber glasshouses.  Our chilli passion became a business in 2001 and ever since we have grown hot peppers commercially in Bedordshire.  These pages are where we will share many of the things we have learned over the years.  If you want to take it further then think about our grower workshop or one of our highly acclaimed chilli cooking workshops.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for here don’t hesitate to ring us or drop us an email at

We hope to see you at the Chilli Ranch soon!!!

Shawn and Joanna
