It’s Autumn!

We are well into the Autumn season now, and the growing season is coming to an end. As I look out my office window and enjoy the colours that the season offers, I think back to a very eventful and busy year. The world is a very different place to what it was at the beginning of 2020.

For me, it has been another extremely busy year so far. Both professionally and on the ChilliChump side of things. I am busy harvesting the last of my chillies, creating some sauces and recipes, and of course making some new videos for you lovely people! I have a couple of surprises coming up for you too, so keep an eye on my social media, and of course on this website (get yourself added to the newsletter too!)

The 2021 ChilliChump seedkit is coming soon, I promise! I am waiting for Jukka (from to confirm the germination rates for the varieties I want to include in the pack. As soon as things are confirmed, I will be announcing that the pack is ready for sale!

It is almost the end of October, and that means the entries for the Poblano competition will be closed, so make sure to submit your entry before then. I have had a really good response so far, and some very nice looking Ancho Poblanos!

I hope you, your family, and your friends are all keeping safe and well.

Stay spicy!

  1. Good Day Mr. ChilliChump,
    I starting to watching your great videos for the last several months…I love your soft and easy voice. Your topics and basic terms makes your videos awesome!!! I would like to know if you can recommend a site where I can purchase a basic starting chili seeds kit. All sites that I visit are always sold out!!! I want a piri peri pepper!
    Thank you and keep up with such great video making.

    1. Hello Leti,

      I am really glad you are enjoying my videos!

      Regarding seeds, there are a lot of restrictions around selling seeds. It is something I would like to do, especially selling starter kits like you mention. There are a few seed sellers I could recommend, but it would depend on which country you live in.

      1. Good Day Again Mr. ChilliChump,

        I live in Riverside County, California. Any information would be greatly appreciated…Happy Holidays to you and your family.
        Regards, Leti

    2. Hi Leti, I follow The Chump also. He’s great. I grow in Pennsylvania. I use for seeds. They’ve a wide variety of peppers, both live plants and seeds. They’ll ship from New Jersey. I’ve searched their website, I don’t think they’ve starter kits.

  2. Shaun,

    Thanks for doing what you do. I’ve been into into BBQ, grilling, and growing fresh vegetables for years, but hadn’t tried hot sauce yet. I’m excited to try my hand at it and appreciate the videos you’ve put out to help get someone started.

    I’ve noticed with other YouTubers that they sometimes use some of the brine to thin their sauce instead of straight vinegar. Are there reasons you don’t use the brine for things like your buffalo hot sauce?

    Thanks again,

  3. Hi Shaun,

    I notice that since Brexit, fatalii has a checkbox saying we take responsibility for importing seeds as we are now outside of the EU. Any idea if your seed kit will require any extra paperwork to purchase from the UK? or do you have alternative sellers of this kit?

    1. I haven’t had problems in the past receiving seeds from fatalii. That being said, there is always a risk. This isn’t a Brexit issue, this is due to the lack of a phytosanitary certificate. This is an expensive, and in my mind unnecessary requirement…but it is what it is.

      I don’t have other vendors selling the Seedkit. However I am planning to sell the Seedkit direct from myself for the next year (alongside other seeds)
