I'm Tipping This Is A Habanero

Buying seed from eBay isn't always as good as you think, especially when you get fruit on plants you never bought seed for. Two good examples this year for me are, a Peter Pepper that was the wrong shape almost straight, then the one in the photo. I used seed from eBay for a chilli called Hanoi Red and from two seeds planted got one Hanoi Red and the plant in the photo (above). It's been slow to mature, but has held its shape all the way through, only to start and show colour this week.

I almost forgot to include the last photo I took of my (real) Peter Pepper chilli before it sold last week. It was rather large and looked very good in the 58lt white tub I had it in.
