Has anyone grown too many chilli plants this year and would be happy to sell me just a few or swap them for something like soap? I fancy growing a few varieties on my office window sill. I can't buy them locally, I could buy them online but if anyone on here has any available first of all?

If you one or two spare, yes please. Probably can find a suitable swap to send back to you.

I have never tasted them or heard of them until I googled. I imagine that if they are good you would need to grow quite a lot?

Cathryn, I have spare, I sewed all the seeds, not expecting a great success and they have all sprouted.

I'm potting them on today, I shall try and work out the best way of getting them to you....

I'd never seen these outside of Spain until they showed up in the coop this week. Delicate* flavour, and great with garlic and oil.

They sell them roasted at Ultracomida. You should go there.

I managed to pick some chilli plugs up in Tesco the other day, they'd been reduced to 55p for a tray of three.
