My 2010 ornamental chili peppers

Growing chili peppers
October 18, 2010


The ornamental chili plants begin to lose their leaves: I hope they will last until Christmas, like the last year winter chilies but it's definitely time for a review.

Rain forest tricolorCertainly the most fascinating is the Rain forest tricolor, with purple and green and pods that ripen in amazing variegated stripes of green, yellow, orange and red.


Ecuadorian PurpleI love the Ecuadorian Purple too, round black pods that ripen from black to bright red, in sharp contrast with the black leaves.


Frida BlackThe best plant is the Black Frida: a large shrub, very productive, with many fruits that ripen from black to orange. The summer peppers are drying on the plant, but several new black pods have already born.


Peruvian PurpleThe Peruvian Purple is an ornamental, dark plant, with pods that ripen from black to red.


Fluorescent PurpleThe Fluorescent Purple is a plant that resisted the previous winter, with pods that ripen from purple to red. The name Fluorescent is well deserved because of its amazing purple variegated leaves.


Cats ClawThe Cat's Claw pods ripen from green to red.


Bolivian RainbowThe Bolivian Rainbow pods ripen from yellow-purple to orange and finally to red, creating a rainbow of colors.


Black PearlI had to wait for the Black Pearl this year, a plant with black leaves and round black pods, but is still among the most beautiful plants.


TraviataI grow a traviata plant last year, saved the seeds without isolating them and I got this lovely hybrid, different than the original plant but very productive and colorful.

che bella carrellata di piante di peperoncini, una diversa dall altra. Mi piacerebbe molto averne un paio per ornare qualche angolo della mia casa.

p.s. stavo cercando i FEEDS al tuo blog per poterti seguire meglio ma non li trovo. Mi sai dire se e dove sono? Grazie :-)

ho già scritto una domanda simile,ma...non mi ricordo dove..la ripeto, scusate:
Ma i peperoncini ornamentali sono commestibili?

Ciao Marika, sì i peperoncini ornamentali sono commestibili... se sono veramente peperoncini! Attenzione infatti perché esiste il Capsicastro, una pianta simile al peperoncino, coltivata a scopo ornamentale, che è tossica.
