Orange Thai Pepper

We had 3 Orange Thai pepper plants. It's a cayenne-type pepper that we plan on drying.

It needs 80 - 90 days for fruit to fully develop and since we were so late getting our plants in, the green fruit didn't ripen on the plant fully. There are hundreds of little peppers on these plants. I didn't have time to harvest all of the peppers so we just cut the plant at the base. Instead of picking off all of the green fruit, we hung it in our backyard in Chicago and the fruits are beginning to turn orange.

It is hanging on an antique tobacco dryer
