Purple chili pepper

My purple peppers aren’t turning red. They’ve been purple for at least 5 weeks or so. Leaves are already getting dry. Should I still wait? Can they be consumed now?

Your Purple Chili Peppers are ripe when they turn purple - the clue is in the name!
You can see exactly what the peppers should look like here:

If your chilies are looking like this, then they are ready for harvest. Hope you enjoy them!


Here are my peppers. The plant care instructions on your website says that they turned red when ripened. Mine aren’t turning red.


They are ready. And very beautiful!

They will turn bright red soon, but you can also try some now- the purple ones also have heat in it. How old is your plant?
