Purple tiger

They started as seeds, a collection of carefully labelled chilli seeds taped to a card presented to me by E.  Every type had a heat rating too.  I planted them in April, in a tray, keeping a map of which one went where.  Most germinated, optimistically, a few weeks later, although by then my map had disappeared into the piles of paper in my room.

Now, the purple tiger is easily recognisable though:  purple flowers and small dark fruit, which should ripen to red.
