UK: Gourmet Genetics announces marketing deal with CN Seeds
Instead of the usual competition to find the hottest chilli, the emphasis has been on understanding and developing more complex flavours. An example is the Trinidad Perfume, which looks like a typical Habanero but rather than heat, boasts an intense and aromatic flavour. Another early Gourmet Genetics introduction, Hot Thai, was given the RHS Award of Garden Merit, for its compact habit and very high yield potential.
“In chilli peppers, there is a lot of hype around how hot a chilli can be, but rather than heat Gourmet Genetics has selected a range that focuses on really good taste and flavour,” said CN Seeds business development manager, Charles Seddon.
Gourmet Genetics partner, Maggie Goodsell, said: “Our strengths in the business have been the breeding and selecting of new varieties. To allow us time to continue with this side of the business we have come to an agreement with CN Seeds who will now be doing the marketing and dispatch on our behalf.
“CN Seeds will stock all our core varieties and will also be responsible for the launch of six new chillies and a cocktail tomato planned when seed becomes available later this year.”
