Just to show some chillies I bought at the neighbourhood grocery store just now. They are rather big. It has no heat like bell pepper. Last year, I grew a few plants from seeds collected. Only one chilli produced before the plant turned yellow and died. That chilli was only half the size of the original one. It will be interesting if can grow one like a perennial plant.

I am growing these too. Saw some at Ghim Moh market, and bought them. I think they came from Malaysia. There is also a petite variety, which you can find in grocery mart. They are perennial in our climate actually.

My peppers usually start producing at 3 to 4 months. There is no heat, and the yellow variety is sweeter. However, the flesh is thinner than the normal capsicum. Imho, they are easier to grow than the normal capsicum

Did you wait until the chilli was dry before you harvested the seeds ?

No. I remove the seeds to dry on paper towel and eat the chilli.

Think these would be good if stuffed with meat or sausage wrapped with bacon and thrown in the oven. :drool:/>

Chilli seeds can be harvested when still fresh.

It is at Bishan St 24 market/mall, one of the vegetable stalls inside. They occasionally stock this only, Usually they don't have. If they stock mini sweet peppers, then they will not stock the bigger ones.
My initial observations is that the chilli grown from the collected seeds are unable to reach the same size. For some reasons, like maybe genes or growing conditions, not enough sun.

I've collected some of the chilli seeds. If you want to experiment growing seeds of this variety you can pm me a mailing address. I cannot guarantee that it will grow to a big size. collected on August, should be still viable..

I have seen them at both Whampoa market and also at the market at Sims Drive. They taste better than normal capsicum as its sweeter. Tried growing them before but not really successful as they seldom reach the size of those you see at the market. The largest fruit I ever had was about 6 inches. most of the rest are about 3-4 inches only. I used lots of chic poo.

I have taken a photo of my Cayenne pepper which is still not ripe but it is already 20cm long it has a mild taste and very easy to eat, I understand that as the chilli goes red it takes on a slightly hotter taste but still not too hot.
I am growing this hydroponically in my drip system, 15 minutes timer on 3/4 hour off.
My Habinaros are also growing big but still green.

My wife and I were in Turkey last year and many people ate these green which have a capsicum taste which is quite pleasant.
