The recent spate of warm and sunny weather has suited the chillis very well, though I'm sure they will have sensed from the cool night-time temperatures that Autumn is not too far away, so they had better get their fruit ripened quickly! [In this context, when one says something is "turning", one means that it is just beginning to change colour, as a sign of ripeness.]
My Scotch Bonnet plant has produced a huge mass of fruits like those ones above, but it was looking very tired (who could blame it?), so I have pruned it ready for its resting phase. I hope to be able to keep it alive until next year.
That's a bit different from how it looked a month ago:
Prior to the pruning job I picked all the chillis of a reasonable size:
I think this next photo demonstrates very well why I grow chillis. Even if I never ate any of them, I would still want to photograph them!
Meanwhile, lots of the other types of chilli are changing colour too:
|This one is a Sweet Pepper, not a chilli|
Even the little tiny "Black Prince" chillis look as if they will turn red. If they do, that will be a pretty sight.
