A walk between my chili plants

Growing chili peppers
July 19, 2010

Every year I enjoy using my chili peppers in many recipes... but I also enjoy to walk between the plants, watching the flowers and the ripening pods.

CarmineThis Carmine chili is one year old. I transplanted it, pruning branches and roots to create a Bonchi, a bonsai-chili.
The plant has survived and has many pods.

RedskinThis Redskin plant is only 40 cm high, but full of these enormous fruits: I have already harvested the first, still unripe, sweet and crunchy.

Paprika White and RedskinEqually amazing, the White Paprika, with large and tasty fruits, here with the Redskin from the previous picture.

Hungarian SpiceI have not tasted yet this hybrid chili, with flowers and pods which grow in gorgeous bunches.

Bulgarian CarrotThe name of this chili is Bulgarian Carrot, because the peppers will ripe to orange. At the moment there is only one pod, almost as tall as the plant.

Habanero PinkI don't eat hot chilies, but every year I like to grow some new Chinense varieties, like this Habanero Pink.
