Picked the first of our Cayenne chilies today and we are delighted with the results, the two plants that we are growing have produced a great harvest of really fine specimen size chillies, the chilies are about 5 inches long and a broad meaty shape! we look forward to trying them in the kitchen, we grew chillies last year but they did not produce this early and nowhere near this size! and while we are on the subject of chillies the lemon drops have been producing a very steady crop this year! we have been picking them for nearly 8 weeks now and are delighted with them, while they are only 2/3 inches long they pack a HOT punch, the Scotch bonnet are doing well and should be ready for picking at the end of the month, photos of the chilies in our 2009 Harvest album.......
