Giant Chilli Contest at Malvern Autumn Show 2017 - Get Sowing

Giant Veg has teamed up with the Chilli Growing community to host a national challenge and hopefully the growers will enter the record books at the Malvern Autumn Show on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th September 2017.  The current World Record the heaviest Chilli pepper weighs 0.29 kg (0.63 lb), grown by Edward Curry (USA) at Curry Farms in Pearce, Arizona, United States, and measured on 6 November 2009. The green chili pepper measured 26.03 cm (10.25 in) long and 9.52 cm (3.75 in) wide.

We are working to submit a new record attempt with Guiness World Records on the World's Longest Chilli.
