Pod Variation

All chile peppers are thin, red and blisteringly hot right? Well you could not be further from the truth. The Capsicum genus is one of the most diverse fruit (berry) species with pods coming in colours of red, green, purple, white, brown and black. And range in size from smaller than a pea to larger than a banana.

This Chileman's guide aims to give you a quick pictorial overview of the wonderful world of pod diversity by highlighting just a small sample of the more weird and wonderful pods from the chileman database. Please note, images are for illustration purposes only - sizes are not relative to each other.
