Hilly Chili's in Hyderabad

The first crop of mountain green chili's from our balcony garden. These were grown from the ones that Dad had carefully packed and brought a year back.

When they first started germinating and sprouting, we were doubtful if they would survive the heat of Hyderabad.

Several of the plants that grew to a full size ultimately withered away during the summer, but a few survived. They went months without flowering, and then just around the end of monsoon, they started flowering.

Very sparsely, and with more plants succumbing to the dry heat of the day, they started bearing fruit.
