Pepper season?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 Short and sweet (or spicy)! We have been finding peppers everywhere. Some have been hotter than others, and I have been learning all about capsicum (thanks to a few friends, and with some help from google and wikipedia).

Please,  just for fun, if you can, identify the peppers pictured.

    Never knew peppers could be so beautiful! Kudos to the photographer!

  3. the truth is I’m not 100% sure of the names of these peppers…but I can say that from left to right: #3&4 are bell peppers, #5, 6, 7 I think are scotch bonnets, #8 no idea, then perhaps #9 a habanero and #10 a bird’s eye chili.

    Also, sometimes the venders can tell me a Malawian name of a fruit or vegetable, but rarely an English name. The guy who sold me the red scotch bonnets, didn’t seem to know English so when I asked him if they were spicy he just smiled.
