We love chili peppers. They look bright and colourful and they are very divers both in looks as in taste. We also like to eat them but only the milder ones. We grow the extremely hot peppers but they are meant for the ‘advanced’ pepper connaiseur.

We didn’t always grow peppers, in 2016 we started with a small batch. Now it is our specialty and our Kwekerij is totally dedicated to the chili pepper.

Our objective with this website is to get you more acquainted with this fascinating plant, or vegetable or fruit (what is it, really?). There are so many fascinating aspects to the use of chili peppers, here we will feed you with all kinds of interesting facts.
