Chili Plants on my balcony 2

GoldCone(10a)September 6, 2012

I wanted to share the few plants I am growing here in Athens / Greece on my balcony:

Here is a plant I got from pods I purchased in Tanzania / Africa. Funny thing is that I don't recall their shape being that way and being that big. There is a slight Chinense flavor, and the heat is unequal depending the part of the pod you are eating:

The plant:

The pods: I have no clue what type is it, when I got them at 1st I thought it was some king of Hab, but the shape doesn't really match:

Here is my 2 years old Naga, no pod sofar, the weather has been way to hot up to now, we'll see in a few weeks:

My 3 year old scotch bonnet, not very productive either but the pods are very tasty and hot!

A nice ornamental giving lots of small yello pepper with mild heat, perfat to throw directly in a salad:

And my little protective friend guarding the plant:
