When I did this video I thought I was trying a normal Bishop's Crown, and that mine had grown extra huge (far too big to fit in the mouth in one go - or so I found out afterwards lol). I have since found out that they are not normal bishop's crown but a very similar type called the Balloon Chilli. Seeds can be bought from www.chileseeds.co.uk.

I have since had a normal Bishops's Crown to try (upload coming soon), which was a bit hotter and a lot smaller than these are.
Taste wise it is exactly like the crown, extremely sweet, and with very little heat apart from in the placental tissue in amongst all the seeds.

I would recommend growing these (and the normal bishop's crown) as they are3 awesome looking pods and although they have very little heat they taste great, perfect for salads etc.

Hope you enjoy catcha next time!
