End of July, and some of my varieties are just starting to set flowers. Really really late. But at least there are fewer aphids.

I collected seeds for these malaguetas when we were in Brazil 2001. So the seeds are 10 years old. I hope that these flowers turn into pods. So I can save new seeds. I'm a big fan of frutescens.
These flowers are typical for frutescens. Many flowers per node, and they have a greenish colour.

Reminds me of the film Woman on top with Penelope Cruz. The Brazilian cook who goes to San Francisco, and cooks with malaguetas. If you haven't seen it, it's a nice movie :-)

Keep it hot!
