Growing chili peppers
December 11, 2009

Numex Big JimI'm surprised by this Numex Big Jim chili plant, with the last -almost ripe- pod.
It seems like the plant decided that the upper branches were destined to die, so it kept the pod and let all the leaves fall.

The green bush at the bottom of the plant are the new branches, ready for the next year.
