Chili balls

Last year I bought a packet of random chili seeds and planted them in various pots around the house.  Only one plant survived and it turned out to be the most interesting chili plant I have ever laid eyes on. Every couple of months it produces these bright red, fire-hot, perfectly round chilis. I know you can get a great variety of chili plants in places like Mexico but we generally seem to have two varieties, big and small 🙂

If anyone knows anything about these guys, please share the knowledge …

Chilli Ball – A brightly coloured chilli that is round in shape. The colour will vary between green, red and orange depending on maturity. The flesh has a crisp, strong, rich hot flavour. The seeds are hotter than the flesh.
You guessed right it seems.
Also ‘Ball Chili Red – much hotter than it’s greener relative, this small round chili is about 3cm in diameter and is excellent in Mexican dishes and chutneys.’
