 Edible Ornamentals? Garden centres and nurseries? The connection?

 Well, Edible Ornamentals is unique in the world of garden centres and nurseries because we specialise in chilli plants (we grow over 40 varieties) and vegetables. Indeed, we run the one of the largest chilli farms in the UK, right here in Chawston, near St Neots. Our farm shop has lots of local produce and our market garden is abundant with delicious, fresh vegetables.

 

Our Unique New Restaurant August 2013

The Edible Kitchen

A range of chilli-based dishes created from Joanna’s own recipes are unusual and use chillies of differing heat. People who like sizzling hot dishes will be tempted to try spicy chicken wings and hot legs which are marinated in Joanna’s home made Inferno chilli sauce. Those with gentler taste buds will enjoy the Chilli Poppers which are fresh Jalapeno peppers stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon, while chilli fans wishing to take a risk can try the Pimento De Padrone, which are a Spanish tapas chilli dish in which most are mild, but one in ten is mind-blowingly hot.

 The Edible Kitchen Restaurant is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am until 4pm.

 OUR ONLINE SHOP


 Edible Ornamentals is St Neots' first 'Pick Your Own Vegetable' centre, where you can pick a wide range of the freshest of seasonal vegetables straight from the plant. These include fresh peppers, spinach, Swiss chard, lettuce, cabbage, dwarf French beans, tomatoes, sweet corn and an unusual variety of long aubergines.

 

Joanna and Shawn Plumb founded Edible Ornamentals in 2001. "We're passionate, slightly obsessive chilli growers," they say." On our chilli farm we raise fresh chillies, stunning chilli plants and mouth watering fiery sauces.

 

Our ethos is simple: we grow and cook chillies with skill and passion - and our fresh-grown chillies make the most scrumptious sauces and chutneys."

 

Joanna makes numerous radio and television appearances - you may have heard her on Radio 2's Chris Evans Show, Radio 4's You and Yours and see her on TV's Ready Steady CookWorking Lunch and Economy Gastronomy. She also broadcasts regularly on BBC Three Counties radio. All because she runs a successful specialist farm and farm shop in Chawston near St Neots!

 

Chilli tour vouchers can be purchased for that really special present.

Went on a half day hydroponics chili growing course. Good facilities friendly helpful staff and morning well spent. Shawn, who presented the course and is one of the owners was extremely knowledgeable and the course content was interesting. Even on a winters day the facility was well worth the tour to see the layout and real time set up. This was mixed with an indoors presentation. Bought a valentines chilli pack in their shop and wife loved it:-)

Super family run business. Incredibly friendly and enthusiastic about growing chillies and what you can do with them. Left there completely inspired to grow them at home and overjoyed with Christmas present from my daughter of everything we need. Looking forward to a super crop of our own home-grown chillies. Thank you Joanna and family.

My first impressions of the Edible Ornamentals Restaurant was the welcoming, homely atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and friendly, making me feel instantly at ease. The food was delicious, very reasonably priced and the portion size, generous. It was also fun to explore the integral shop whilst waiting for the food. A lovely restaurant for a relaxed, tasty meal and very family friendly. Would highly recommend and will certainly visit again.
