I have all of two chilli fruit. One jalepeno and one hot Thai. And that’s it. Nothing else had fruited, there is lots of foliage but nothing else. As the summer ends, and we enter the twilight of autumn; I am becoming disillusioned with the likelihood that anything is actually going to crop in there. Not really the success that I was hoping for in the poly tunnel.

What about taking some home and seeing what happens indoors?
My chillies seem to fruit at around Christmas time.
These are all transplanted into the poly and wouldn’t have by room at home sadly 😦
That is sad!

Thank you for sharing have a blessed day
It’s been so hot I’m surprised they have not fruited. We grew far too many last year… And far to hot. But I started then inside and moved them out when they got to big. Mine thrived in the sun and with some nice tomato feed. Maybe not enough Sun in the poly tunnel?
Gets so hot bad bright in there. Have managed to get two small aubergines so no idea
For all the benefits of poly tunnels I do wonder if there could be an issue with pollination. Did you get flowers?
Yeah definitely tiny little floo’ers that get tickled
My Chilli plants (2 out of the 3) have small fruit forming but as Summer is over, I will have to see whether they form properly and can be enjoyed. Good Luck!
