Vegetable Growing : Chilli Peppers

Heatwave peppers turning colour
This year I successfully grew several plants of Capsicum annuum ‘Heatwave’. They are huge and very healthy with lots of large dark green peppers. The seed packet described them as a mixture of red, yellow and orange cayenne peppers. There is no sign of any of them turning colour. Will this still happen? It seems to be getting rather late.

Chilli or cayenne peppers will continue to ripen into October and if you scale back to minimum watering this will be speeded up.
