Morning again Pauline. They are, I did have a couple of Chilli plants last year that I was given, but I've never done peppers before. ❤💚❤

Morning Jane .......I actually bought these for my daughter but she'd already got some. Thought I'd give them a go anyway :)

Morning Pauline I grow them every year but this year I have lots of large fruits but they are turning brown at the end, not sure what's going on 😯

Morning Pauline, glad it's sunny for you it's rather dull here but dry at least. Peppers are on my list to try next year if they don't take too much room up. @angiecrazycatlady I wonder if the brown is blossom end rot due to a lack of calcium and irregular watering? Just my thoughts

@jpea I wondered that too I water often but with a South facing greenhouse it's hard to keep up, I usually grow them really well & make lots of pepper soup but this year I bought plants from supermarket instead of growing from seed so maybe they aren't good plants to start with 😬

Morning Pauline, they are 👍🏼 I've been surprised at how pretty a lot of the veg flowers are, it's a lovely bonus!
