MTS van Luijk - Brouwer
Chilli peppers are available in a wide range of varieties and sizes at Levarht. The red, green and yellow chilli peppers are grown by Ad van Luijk. The MTS van Luijk - Brouwer nursery is located in Nootdorp and covers 1.3 hectares. The business has been operating since 1985.
Ad van Luijk explains: “Chilli peppers are like bell peppers: the fruit starts off green, and then turns red.”
If you want to find out precisely how hot a chilli pepper is, you can refer to the Scoville scale. This will show you that there are much hotter varieties than the Fireflame chilli pepper grown by MTS van Luijk – Brouwer. The Scoville scale is shown on the chilli pepper packaging which Levarht has developed. Green chilli peppers are generally a bit milder, followed by red chilli peppers, whilst the yellow variety is hotter still.
Ad van Luijk: “Red chilli peppers are a great natural source of flavour and very healthy. More and more people are discovering chilli peppers.”
