Naughty Chillies..



The world most 'naughty' looking Chilli????

I had never seen a Pecker Pepper before...

These are actual peppers from a garden.
They are called 'Peter Peppers'..


The world’s most offensive-looking plant

When I first saw its picture, I thought it’s just another photoshopped hoax, but digging deeper, I was surprised to discover that it’s a real plant, usually called the Peter Pepper, scientific name capsicum annuum var. annuum ‘Peter’.

It’s native to Louisiana and Texas .

It’s been called many other names, including Chilli Willy and Penis Chilli; and has been judged “Most Pornographic Pepper” by Organic Gardening Magazine.

Not surprising, since it looks like so:
Apparently it has always been grown more as an ornamental thing, rather than to be eaten, although it’s perfectly edible..
By the way, a farmer who specialises in growing them, says they can grow up to 18" long!
Sort of brings a tear to your eyes, doesn't it?
INFO : they are grown mostly around Ontario , Canada , the southern United States and in parts of Pakistan .
