In this category we showcase some of the amazing hybrid chilli varieties sourced from reputable growers around the globe that are setting the trend at present in the chilli fraternity. These chillies are what we consider to be hybrid varieties. Many people misunderstand the term "hybrid". Hybrid does not mean genetically modified or manufactured in a test tube! Quite to the contrary, these varieties are all natural varieties. Hybrid simply meaning "cross pollinated". Chillies by their very nature are natural hybridizers. Chillies naturally cross pollinate with other varieties of chillies. This is a totally natural process. This not only ensures genetic diversity in the species, it also creates some very interesting and exciting varities for those of you who are always looking for the next best thing.
The joys of growing hybrid chillies is in the unpredictable nature of the outcome. Some of the most amazing varieties have come about through hybridization. Some have been purposefully crossed and other have materialised by complete coincidence. It is exciting to see how these varieties evolve over time. Hybrids evolve in totally different ways, so you may just be the proud owner of something totally unique. So if this sounds like your cup of
tea chillies... you can be part of this natural phenomena too!
