Pinocchio's Nose chilli peppers

This is the first time I tried growing chili peppers. I was reading BBC's Gardeners World magazine (here's thier website), and Pippa Greenwood had some recomendations. She liked this Pinocchio's Nose one the best. So I thought I would go with this, and see what happened.
Aren't they just weeee! Curly! They must have been designed by Tim Burton!
I don't think they are ripe just yet, as the pic in my seed catalogue shows them being red and dark purple.
This pic is from thompson-morgan website, see all the hot pepper seeds they offer!

Thanks for the note on the parsley. I have noticed the seed are finally falling from mine and I am hoping they'll sprout. You said you are planting seeds also. Do you find they sprout from the self-seeded seeds too? I've been spreading some around the young lettuce also.

Lovely photos you have on your site. I appreciate the rose seed tip too. I have a wild rose with lovely rose hips. I have been hoping it would spread but hadn't thought about potting some seeds to plant where I want later. I'll give it a try.
thanks again, P Gardener

Thanks for visiting recently.

I've never grown chilli peppers but yours look good - and grown outdoors by the looks of it?

Petunia's Gardener, parsley does indeed sprout from self sown seeds. I already have several baby planties all over the veggie garden.

john curtin, I grew the peppers in pots, which I carried in and out of the house depending on the weather. They did stay outside for a lot of the summer. But now they are inside, on the south side of the house in front of our glass doors. If the sun shines warmly, I do bring them out, though.

Hi there, yes these chillis would have eventually turned red. I always found this type to have a few too many seeds and not enough flesh to them
