The warm weather we have had over the last month or so has brought the chillis on quickly. Most of the plants have at least a few fruits turning colour. These are small sweet peppers, grown from seeds brought back from a holiday in Turkey - hence nicknamed "Turkish Sweet Pepper".
This is what the Turkish peppers look like before they ripen. They are a very pale shade of green.
In another pot I have "King of the North", also a Sweet Pepper.
I'm fairly sure that the fruits of this plant have been affected by the contaminated compost problem because they don't look like a normal pepper. Instead of being round and "blocky" they are thin and "pointy".
This ripening one looks more like a tomato.
This colourful fella is "Ohnivec":
I tried one of the immature (cream-coloured) ones a couple of days ago, just to see what they are like. It was surprisingly hot, but very nicely flavoured.
My "Explosive Embers" chilli plant is covered in tiny purple fruit now.
This is a very compact plant, which would be ideally suited to growing on a sunny windowsill.
Although currently a bright purple colour, those chillis will ripen to red, like these "Nosferatu" ones, which started out being almost black.
