While I was away...

...I left my chilli plant in the washing-up bowl with some water to keep him hydrated. And look at what happened!!
My chillis turned red!

No idea what it's about. None of the others did it. I wondered if it's because they'd been left on longer but I left the other ones that I've already harvested on there for ages and they showed no signs of turning green.

I did stick one of the green ones in a bit of pasta magic the other night and they. are. spicy. I accidentally licked my fingers after I'd chopped it and my head nearly came off. Not for the faint hearted.

I will have to harvest these little red babies and see what they do to my taste buds....

honestly I think your chilies just wanted attention. They thought nobody was paying attention to them so they turned red as if to say, "HEY. HEY DAMN IT LOOK AT US!"
