    [QUOTE=Chris11;1608233]SP, info here: Akabare Nepalese Chilli

    My 2017 Akabare Nepalese was a very big plant that just grew and grew last year, without properly flowering and fruiting. I topped it at over 2ft, then it grew several upward shoots and got topped again at around 3ft. It's my only plant that overwintered without dropping any leaves.

    Thanks Chris,

    Knew it was something along those lines

    More interestingly you have jogged my memory I think
    You state above you had a "plant that just grew and grew last year, without properly flowering and fruiting.
    I think that I may have had the same experience now you mention it..
    A tall upright compact plant that looked perfectly healthy all year but failed to really flower or provide fruit

    I am growing it this year so hopefully between the three of us, someone will have fruit...

    I'm also growing a couple of BOC x Yellow Primo this year. Will be interesting to see what results we all get, as I'm assuming this is an early generation unstable cross.

    It's producing fruit like mad. Very difficult to photograph. They are deep, deep under cover. Will have a go later.

    I did tell you that you would love the Bangalore Whippets Tale plant and it's vigorous growth and striking masses of fruits...
