I've been picking chillis nearly every day now. Wait until they are fully red and then harvest them. This will enable unripe chillis on the plant to develop. Don't leave them on the plant when they are ready to be picked, you will inhibit the ripening of the others.
So these Transylvanian Targu Mures chillis
are on a plate in my airing cupboard.
Same here with these Joe's Long Cayenne chillis
. Drying slowly in a warm cupboard.
Meanwhile back on the plot, these Physalis
are beginning to ripen. Hanging underneath the branches these plants look really lush and healthy.
I planted two plants here next to each other, they need a partner for good pollination.
And here they are! Really lovely, sweet fruit. I can highly recommend giving them a go.
