This is a beautifully presented book which covers the basics on chillies.

In Chapter 1 there is a very brief history of chillies - but did you know that the Portuguese are thought to have introduced chillies to Asia? It makes you wonder what pre-chilli food was like in India and Thailand.

Chapter 2 contains some instructions for successfully growing chillies and a chilling list of pests and diseases to be ready to fight off.

Chapter 3 is called 'Chilli Selector' there are 26 double-page profiles of individual chilli types. On the first page is data on Origin, Appearance, Heat Levels, Sowing, Growing, & Cooking and Eating. The second facing page has a mouth watering or perhaps eye watering photograph of the chilli in question.

Chapter 4, the final chapter is entitled Using and Eating Chillies and covers topics such as Drying, Smoking, Pickling etc..

All in all this is a comprehensive coverage of the subject for anyone interested in starting their own chillies or anyone, like me, who is a long established fan of the hot stuff. As you would expect from a book carrying the RHS name it is technically accurate and practical but this is also a lovely book. A hardback 21cm x 16cm with beautiful photographs on good quality paper. Anyone familiar with the RHS annual desk diary will recognise the style. Unfortunately the publisher has not given sample pages to see on Amazon. I have attached a sample below as an illustration of the quality of the book. Finally I got it for a bargain price of £3.00.

Calling this book the complete guide is somewhat of a misnomer. It's A5 format and not many pages.

I subsequently bought the 'Complete Chilli Pepper Book', that at least can make some claim to being 'complete'.
