Its been a while and being the tortured cubicle dweller and coping up with my allergic rhinitis hardly gave me any time. But nevertheless, managed to grow a potful of Banana Peppers or Hungarian Yellow Wax peppers which were amazing to taste and so pretty to ogle at.
Take a look at how it all started. It took a wait of two and half months from the seed to the fruit.The journey began when the colour on the packet enticed me.
I did not get the pretty yellow but managed to get pretty close to the hue. Heres a pictorial journey of the lovely peppers. I particularly loved the one in the extreme right. The pepper sure looks like a banana.
And heres one for the buffet table, Loved adding the colour to the table.
And when it was enough of gourmet, I decided to give it the Desi Tadka. So ripened a few peppers n the plant ,and made a yummylicious chutney which was a hit with the Idli’s.
- The peppers are very thirsty plants
- They need atleast four hours of sunlight.
- The plants are prone to attracting aphids and need particular care when they bear peppers.
- They paint a pretty colourful picture when they are left to ripen in the pot.
And for the next time,if time permits, I am going to try out the stuffed pepper recipe mentioned here.
So long folks..have fun pottering around and holler if you need to know more.
