very well behaved plant

I am a beginner gardener but an expert at killing plants.. this little chilli is the best plant I ever had, it bravely gave me beautilul ( and quite spicy) fruits the first year, and it was more than productif the second year though it was only 40cm high!!! despite a cheaky mouse that ate the fruits when they were still green in spring summer, this little warrior still managed to issue 15 more flowers throughout the winter ( yes 15 I did count) and I collected the last one last week ( aka mid July) though this second batch was not spicy at all due to the lack of light..Florian Pasquier (27 Jul 2021, 19:35)
