When To Pick Naga/Bhut Peppers??
Well that about says it all. When do you know its time to pick a ripe Naga Morricch, or Bhut Jolokia,? I have so many red peppers on several plants, I know they must be ripe, but how ripe is just right, or to ripe?? If such a thing exists? If I leave them on to long, will they 'go bad'? Most have been red for about a week now. The half red/green ones I know I have time to wait for them, but these red ones...is there a time limit? It seems like, once picked, they only last about 4-5 days, then get soft and start to rot. Is that normal for the Nagas or Bhuts? It seems VERY fast to go bad in such a short time. Is that normal, or should I refrigerate them?
