Hey Jenise, how are your Italian pimento plants doing?

I just went out to check on mine ......all have peppers, finally! They were tough cookies to raise! They are about 3 ft. tall, full of flowers and each plant has several peppers. Can we use them green or do we wait until they turn red?

I've got some chilli-pepper like plants I've grown from seed I picked up in Puglia, Italy. The funny thing about these peppers is they start green, then go jet black and end up dark red. The peppers are very small and (hence unsurprisingly) they were pretty potent when I tried them in Puglia. I really should find out a little more about them!

If anyones got any thoughts on what they are I'd welcome them.
