Stella should do, but worth checking on a fruit tree website or in a catalogue

What fruit veg could i plant in a shady garden(peas, strawberries)?

Broad beans & peas should be ok but french beans prefer full sun. Could try dwarf broad bean variety. Tomato plants worth a try. Cherry tomato type usually smaller plants. Rhubarb. Lettuce fine in part shade so worth a try. Goes well in cotainers as less slug damage! Hope this helps...

Can anyone suggest "stir fry" type chilli plants suitable for the house without attracting aphids or getting sticky leaves?

Are there any which in addition can survive central heating in the winter?

Shop bought garlic can be successful if you shop around for good varieties. It is also much cheaper.
