I like herbs, gingers, medicinal plants and fruits. I would like to share pictures of my harvest, other gardens and also interesting pictures of creatures found around the garden.
Not Scotch Bonnet!! It's AJI ORCHID
Many thanks to Robert who pointed out to me that the Scotch Bonnet chili is really not as hot as i thought. So last week i decided to cook some "Bak Kuk Teh" and use the Scotch Bonnet instead of the usual chili padi. It was GOOD. It has a nice flavour and is not hot at all, just a little spicy.
Sorry everyone. This chili should be AJI ORCHID as described in http://www.thechileman.org/ . That explains why the flower has a green patch and also the chili is only mildly hot. The entire plant is very pretty when the chilis all turn red. They look like little red lanterns.
This variety has many names: Balloon, Pimenta Cambuci, Campane, Peri Peri, Ubatuba Cambuci, Aji Flor, Bishops Crown and Bishops Hat.
