Post-pick ripening experiment.
There has been some discussion here about how (and whether) pepper pods ripen after they are picked or removed from the plant. The scientific community groups Capsicum with other "non-climacteric" fruits like strawberries that don't. Others have shown pictures of pods that change color sitting on the counter.
The subjects of the experiment are a double handful of fatalii pods that became available when the wind blew over the big container and broke a branch. They are in all stages of development, though none are fully ripe.
This experiment is not intended to address the question of whether the color change indicates actual ripening. That question is well worth exploring. Suggestions - other than eating whole pods to compare the taste - are welcome.
So here's the bowl today. They've been off the plant for three days now.
