The Greenhouse,

is about growing matters, focusing on my greenhouse and potager. I grow mainly vegetables, herbs and spices but flowers have their given place too. From seed to table, this is the nursery for my living food, we cook a lot of delicious food and I say a potager is the cook’s best friend. The greenhouse makes it possible to grow essential, colourful, warmth loving fruit and vegetables even in this climate such as tomatoes and chillies. My main blog is Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden.

Rocoto Chili Pepper - The Flower

This post 'Rocoto Chili Pepper - The Flower' was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe at the blog The Greenhouse

I grow a lot of chilies and this flower of the Rocoto pepper is one of prettiest chili flower that I know of. Therefor I want to show you it now when it is "In floribus", isn't pretty? Most of the chili flowers are plain white but this one has this beautiful deep purple colour.

This is how the fruit of the Rocoto looks like later on...but I have to wait until September or so before I can harvest the lovely Rocoto pepper. I use the Rocoto to make Red Hot Chili Sauce with.

You find more about my Rocoto and recipe for the sauce here in the "Kitchen Garden"  KÖKSTRÄDGÅRDEN
