Thai Bangkok Upright begins to mature!

My chili Thai Bangkok Upright (Capsicum frutescens) fruits are now starting to other color to red. I have 3 large plants, CA 120 cm high with a large abundant branched Crown at the top, but plenty of fruits. I'll probably several hundred chillies on each plant. This chili is pretty small fruits ca. 4 – 6 cm long and narrow fruits that have a strength of ca. 10,000 – 30.000 SHU. This chili I usually freeze in as fresh and dry some and then grind and make a chili powder.

    Hi there I just wondered how big do your chillies grow in 10 litre buckets?

      Hi Stephen!
      It depends on chilli variety. Many will be over 1.5 metres high in a 10 gallon pot. My Dorset Naga plant is 1.3 metres high and 90 cm wide and gives hundreds of chilli fruits in a 10 gallon pot.
