Before i continue i must apologize for the lousy quality of these photos.
These are two ripe Habanero peppers. Or at least i believe they are Habaneros (they could be Scotch Bonnets), as they actually are imported from somewhere in Africa, and that's the most information i can glean from the Bengalis i buy them from at the world-famous Piazza Vittorio market here in Rome.
These two babies are freshly harvested Habanero peppers from the plants i grew from seed last year, along with Locotos, Thai chiles and Bangla chiles.
And now, a photo of the four aforementioned chiles with two cherries for scale...
Try not to hurt yourself laughing so hard.
I think the Habanero plant needs more room to grow chiles of any decent size.
EDIT 2011-05-23: Nine sez they'd make great earrings...!
