anytime mookins!

basically you can eat them green, stripey-- which look good in salads-- or when red (yellow or orange at the moment!) the riper the sweeter and juicier or in the case of chillis the hotter!

Hi to you tulsalady maybe its the funny weather its really warm at the moment

With regard to chillies, I leave mine on the plant for at least two weeks after they have turned red. I've found from past experience that this improves the heat.

I like to leave mine to go red, I think the green ones are bitter,How long is this weather going to last?

It depends on the species, some go purple/black.
This is what mine are like at present. My Scots Bonnet are pale green, Thai and Tepin are dark green, another one (Ithink its Cherry Bomb) is white with purple blotches,Bell peppers are still green, sweet chillies are dark green. They will all turn red eventually.
