Chili Pepper Seeds
Heat Things Up in Your Garden with Chilis!

Hot Chili Peppers Chilis were first cultivated in the valleys of Mexico. They contain an alkaloid, capsaicin, that gives them their heat and are rich in vitamins A and C. 

 Medicinally, chili peppers act as a heart and circulatory stimulant and are used in ointments, liniments and plasters. Small amounts stimulate digestion.

  Each variety has a Scoville heat unit (SHU) noted. For reference, a bell pepper is 0 SHU, a jalapeno is 10,000 SHU, a habanero is 100,000 SHU and a ghost pepper is 1,000,000 SHU.
