Once you have picked your chilli pods, you might wan’t to think about saving some seeds for next year.
Saving chilli seeds is not rocket science, all i do is extract the seeds from the chilli using a pair or tweezers. I then leave them on some kitchen paper for 24 hours to dry. Once dried they can be stored in an air tight bag or container, one of the best tips i can give you is, please label your seeds with a permanent pen! There is nothing worse than guess the chilli seeds!!!
The saved seeds can be stored for a couple of years in a dry place out of direct sunlight.
