Unripe chillies

Postby ashtondav » Wed Nov 10, 2021 2:48 pm

I obviously sowed my chillie seed too late and only a few have turned red. The majority are a pale green/yellow colour. Can they be used? This is in the uk so I doubt they will get any riper!

They are fine while green, and very similar heat to when red.

They were so unripe they were a creamy colour so I bit into one.

You are so VERY right about the heat! :shock:

BTW they freeze really well.. Once thawed the are kinda soggy, but all the taste, ie heat is still there..

The good thing about freezing them is that if you freeze them whole they dont dry out with freezer burn.

I grow Jalapeños as they are easier to manage heat wise. I pick them both as red and green. They are equally hot.

Jalapenos are for babies. Although they do pickle well..
