alas there is little white flowers showing on my chillie plants.
tried growing these last year but failed to do so, but it looks like they have made it.
cant wait for my wife(beth) to make the curry's.
hope everyone is having success also ;)

give them a mist spray to help set the fruits - makes a big difference!

So did I!  I bought one for Aldi the other day - 1.99.  A pack of three peppers was 1.99 too.  There were three little green peppers on it when I bought it and theya re growing fast.  Loads more flowers too.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Annual plants? My vegetable knowledge is pretty much nil I'm afraid. I just know I have far too many chillies to sue and they're still growing!

they complete their life cycle in one year - germination to setting seeds then dying, thats it basically.

Most of my Pepperoncino I planted from seed have burnt in the oven that is my greenhouse this year, so I went to the Smallholders show at the weekend and bought 4 new types of chilli.  OH wanted a naga (supposedly the hottest chilli in the world) and I bought a Thai one for cooking.  The man selling them said that they would overwinter in a warm place like a conservatory (luckily I have one of those) and come back next year!  I have never been terribly successful with overwintering stuff in the greenhouse (I don't really go there in the winter) so I will give it a go.  Never knew they could grow for more than one year - never bothered as I thought they were all annuals!  Amazing to hear from loosey that it works!

Chillies?  Curry?  Urgh .....curry has never once passed my lips. I am not fussy, and will try most foods, but not Indian. ;D
