I don't know that one, but I have some Banana chillies, which are turning a warm yellowish orange - looks like yours are too.  I would think that orange is the ripe colour.  Try one and see 

Cyclamen which way up

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 07:49

Enjoy your cyclamen - when we moved here 3 years ago this week and started to explore the jungle of ivy and russian vine, I was thrilled to find a few little white cyclamen peeping out - over the weeks more and more appeared - I'd always wanted a garden with white cyclamen in it   When the builders dug out the bank to shore it up with sleepers they carefully removed all the huge old cyclamen corms and kept them safe in a dark damp corner and we successfully replanted them.  

As everything's been ahead of time this year, we've got a garden full of little white cyclamen at the moment - absolutely gorgeous

Sorry Fg, I want to hang on to it - can't you push your garden down here?  It's downhill all the way 

Cyclamen which way up

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 07:35

If they're hederifolium it's the other way around - the underside of the corm is smooth and convex, the roots come from the top surface.

We've got lots which we're always having to move around and it used to confuse me until I found this site 


I think Coum are the same but Nut can confirm this I'm sure. 


Addendum:  I've done a bit of Googling which confirms that all cyclamen should be planted with the rough side upwards - the smooth slightly convex side is the bottom.

Verdun, we need it here - but the friend who's coming to stay has connections in the Channel Islands - shall I ask her to send some of their weather to you?  If all the weather just moved up a couple of notches ...?
