Another pepper mystery

I got a chilli pepper plant off my dad. It came from seeds I gave him for his birthday. However, there seemed to be two different varieties in the pack, so I’m not sure what these are.

The chillies are supposed to be hot. Whether that means hot for me is another matter but I think the red one must be ready to eat. So, maybe I’ll find out this evening.

In any case, don’t the purple ones look charming?

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    Is it a SeeKay”purple tiger”… Or possibly more likely a “loco” chilli?

    Both are medium (according to the interwebs) but most chilies are too hot for me!

    I grow jalapenos than make my teeth melt! B-)

  2. They look lovely whatever they are!

  3. Very charming .. I adore chillies. Hope it is hot 😃

      Thank you, Koko. I agree the plant itself is beautiful. If only I could remember its name…. We were talking in the office yesterday about getting some plants and I think these would be ideal 🙂
