Bulb Chilies From Cameron Highlands.

We were in Cameron Highlands with our friends about 2 months ago and a friend bought a pot with a few chili plants growing together. And there were about 5 to 6 chili fruits hanging on the plants. I don't know what type of chilies these are so I will call them bulb chilies.
Ripe chilies from the Cameron Highland chili plants.
They look like small red capsicums.
My friend went home and separated the plants into 2 pots
One pot for herself and this pot she gave to me.
I didn't use the ripe chilies for cooking for fear of excessive fertilizer and pesticide. I left these 2 fruits to ripen and use the seeds to grow more chili plants.
There are now 4 green bulb chilies hanging on the plant. 
So happy to see these new chilies on the plant.
Once they are ripe, I will harvest and will use them for cooking.
So far I have not tasted them but my friend told me that they are not very hot.
I am waiting to harvest the above chili anytime now.
I think I will stuff these chilies to see if they taste like capsicum.
Surprisingly, the plant is only about 1.5 feet tall yet it is bearing so many chilies.
These are the seedlings from the seeds I have sprinkled onto the soil.
More chili flowers.
Ahh! Can you spot the little green bulb chili in the above picture?
I am waiting to make stuffed chilies out of these 3 bright and beautiful red chilies.

Seeds from the previous plant must have sprouted.
Lots of seed pods forming.

These look like tiny spears.

  3. The Ixora plant is so unusual looking. The name sounds kind of Mexican. Abundant peppers. And you answered my question about how hot they may be. Yes, I do see the tiny green one! At the bottom of the picture, right?

    1. Thank you, Diane. I think the chilies are smaller types of bell peppers.

  5. I love your Ixora plant too. I don't know it, but Google told that it is translated into Finnish as 'Star flower'. Have a nice week Nancy.

    1. Thank you, Mun! I cut one, used as dipping in soya sauce to eat with fried rice. Surprisingly, not hot at all. I think these are small bell peppers or capsicums.
