Hello. Have a chilli plant which has produced one chilli. When should I pick it, will it produce more and should I bring plant in during colder nights or will it be ok in plastic greenhouse ?



has it turned red yet? you can harvest them either green or red. if there are more flowers then yes you will possibly get more chillies. It will need a bit of warmth so perhaps bringing it in is a good idea.

I have grown chillies for years – they need feeding as well. I just use tomato feed its an all rounder – mine are all outside just now in pots and are just turning red – but as said you can pick either green or red – Some varieties go on ripening till late October – I bring mine into the greenhouse then and over winter them – and start them off again in the spring. Go to - or just google over winter chili plant - You will find out how to do it - and you will get a better crop next year from your plant
