Chilli Hills Mission is to bring back the Bulgarian carrot chilli pepper!
The “Bulgarian carrot” is a chilli pepper with a very interesting history.
It originates in Bulgaria, where it is known as Shipka.
During the Cold War it was smuggled out across the Iron Curtain and cultivated as a rare variety of hot pepper with distinctive colour and taste.
The aim of our campaign is to re-introduce and popularise this vital and exciting aspect of our culinary heritage within Bulgaria, where it belongs.
