    • How big are the pots ?
      Have you changed the food / composts / have they had enough water.
      Are they your own saved seed ?

      • Ms-T Not sure if you talking to me or not.
        They're in chillis grows, plenty or water and feed.
        Think i will tear it down soon and make a chilli end this/next week.

            to make some lovely chilli, however the reason i was unsure is i have been using a few smaller green one early and they arent very punchy.
            More of a pepper taste than chilli.

            • I harvest all the colours for different meals, green chillies often get sliced on top of a pizza, by thinning a few off the plants, I get bigger and better red ones for adding to a curry or a con carne.
              If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                    • I guess it might depend on just how green they are? If they're very young they can be rather bitter. I find it's nice to catch them before they get particularly hot, so they can be used as a straight salad vegetable.

                      Without thinking, I chopped up a large, ripe, Yellow Seven Pot and threw it iinto tonight's gumbo for the three of us. That left a bit of an after taste!

                      It was quite nice though...

                      • The first of my outdoor chillis is starting to colour up now. It's changing colour pretty fast in this hot weather, so I reckon it should be ripe by about Wednesday.

                              Beaver Dam, which has large pointed fruit and is very mild (500-1000 Scovilles). I don't like much heat.
                              Although I had a nibble on one of the green fruits (I had to remove it because slug damage had caused rot to start to get it), and it had no heat whatsoever. I just tasted like a green pepper. I'm hoping a little heat will develop once it ripens, as I'm already growing 12 sweet pepper plants as well, so don't really need more.
