Great for those who don't want the heat.

Some people, like me, like to cook with chillies but don't want the heat... these do the job perfectly.

Nice but I think they are peppers!?

Used these in a curry and they added no heat to it whatsoever. Tasted them raw and they tasted exactly like a sweet pepper, towards the stalk end there was a VERY slight heat but it's as if they have been put in the wrong package. My young kids ate them raw without complaining which shows how "hot they are not". I would buy again but it would be nice to have slightly more heat to them if they really are chillis?

Green miles?

These chillies were from India when there are loads of British chillies around. Not sure want chillies all the way from India.

No heat at all

Concur with previous reviewers - please source another type!

flavourless and sweet

Absolutely useless in any recipe with red chilli as an ingredient Eaten raw they taste like Romano peppers and will add absolutely no heat to a dish This is a relatively recent problem which has affected my last few orders. I will never buy again and recommend that anyone who expects spice/heat looks elsewhere
