Welcome to The Hippy Seed Company
Your Chilli Seed Specialists
The Hippy Seed Company is run by us ‘Neil & Charlotte’. We are located at Fennell Bay – a few minutes away from the beautiful Lake Macquarie, in New South Wales, Australia.
In 1998 we started this chilli seed company with a little website and began selling seeds around the world. Now many years later, we proudly offer our customers a large selection of chilli varieties from all around the world, as well as seasonal sale of chilli seedlings and chilli plants in our chilli nursery. Not only do we have a large variety of seeds available, we also have a range of award winning chilli sauces, jams, chilli spices, and our famous chilli lollies called ‘Ring Stingers’. Our newest pride and joy is our new pain relieving capsaicin cream called ‘Chill-Ease’.
Everything we grow, is grown on our chilli farm, and every single plant is nursed personally by us. These are the plants from which we get our seeds and take our pictures. We can therefore guarantee, that what you see is what you get.
When you order chilli seeds from us, we provide you with a guidance sheet on how to grow chillies. We also offer visual guidance online, with our ‘instructions on how to grow chilli‘ series on our YouTube Channel.
All our products are handmade and all natural, without additives or preservatives. We love what we do and put a personal touch on everything, whether it is designing the labels, the flavours of the sauces, or pictures of the plants. Everything you see is 100% us.
Home of the ‘YouTube Chilli Tests’
10 years ago Neil was the first one to start the now extremely popular chilli testing on YouTube. We currently have over 300 videos on YouTube, to show you what the plants look like, and to give you an idea of the different flavours and heat levels of the chilli pods.
