chili pepper plant is small

stangoldsmith | Aug 28, 2009 01:33 PM

I am growing two chili pepper plants, one habanero and one supposedly thai chili, both are in medium flower pots.

The habaneros have blossomed and I have three ripe peppers but the thai chilis seem like they are tiny and have not grown in over a month from their size (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch at most), but there are a lot of them (100 or so) on the plant.

Are they ever going to grow longer? Is there a thai chili plant that is only tiny chilis? Should I even bother harvesting these tiny chillis? Many of them are drying out.

I've attached a picture of them from about a month ago, they are all the same size still.

Thanks!
