I bought what was labled a 'Patio Chilli' from my local garden centre this year, and put it on a summer hot window sill in the lounge. It grew beautifully well - first the white flowers, then the little green bumps which turned into the brightest red bush - extremely attractive.
Im not sure though - can one eat these chilli's? Does the plany die off, or should I pick all of the fruit, and overwinter the plant?
Thank you in advance for any tips
Yes you can eat the chillies, that is the main point of growing them . You can overwinter the plant too. Keep it in a cooler place than your hot window sill though.
