The Crossbats Chilli Challenge 2021: Sow your seeds now!

The Crossbats Chilli Challenge 2021: Sow your seeds now!

Only £5 per entrant

Back by popular demand, 2021 will see the return of the once-famous Crossbats Chilli Challenge.

Starting now, Crossbats are invited to cultivate prize winning chillies to be judged by world-renowned chilli-experts at an end-of season event to be announced.

In addition to eternal fame, prizes, subject to the confirmation of our expert panel and at the discretion of the management, may be awarded for:

• The Bell End Chilli Pepper Award – for the chilli which frankly wasn’t worth growing
• The Banana Chilli Pepper (or Jalapenis) Award – for the chilli that generates the most puerile sniggers
• The Carolina Reaper Award – for the hottest chilli (this will be confirmed by a scientific analysis of the chillies using the latest Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) technology and some lunatic trying them).

Please note that anyone found cheating by not growing their own chillies will be disqualified and forced to do something probably illegal and certainly painful with the raw chillies.

Please register your participation with the Social Secretaries
