Capsicum, Bell Pepper

in Actifit9 months ago

I call these babies capsicums or bell peppers and they are not spicy at all. I prefer to call them capsicums considering they are not spicy.
I harvested these 2 some years ago when I grew them.

I tried growing them in my apartment balcony. I was surprised they grew. I threw some seeds into the pot and suddenly they appeared.

I fed them water and used tea leaves almost everyday and they kept growing...

...until I harvested them. They were quite small, about 3cm in size.

They are suppose to be quite big like these in the grocer:

I only know them in 3 main colours, green, yellow and red. I am not sure if there are any other colours.

They are yummy when grilled or stir fried with prawns or squids or chicken slices. After they are cooked, they can be quite sweet. Add them into a dish and you will taste some sweetness in the dish. I usually prefer the red or yellow ones because the green ones give me the impression that they are still raw, although they are not :)

Very cute the little ones.
I also have one plant of each color, yellow, orange and green, but bigger and shaped in cone, not round. I don't know the names hehe.

Hehe they were. It felt such a shame to eat them but we had to, else it would rot. Oo you have them too? It is so cool to see them grow isn’t it? Thank you @steemean for dropping by :)

They look great, and from your balcony too! I love peppers, could just eat them like an apple (I don't though) haha! Also, I didn't know tea leaves could be used! Handy to know :)

Hehe yah. Surprised me too but after that they didn’t grow anymore because bugs came :(
Oh wow eat like apple. I haven’t try that. One day :)
Yes yes, it was such a waste throwing them away and put them into soil. Suddenly these babies grew happily.
