pick a peck of chilli pepper?

The kuros sweet and romital hot chilli pepper plants are going from strength to strength this week, with peppers coming through on all 4 plants.Check out the difference in shape, with the sweet peppers swelling outwards in contrast to the long thin spindley chillis.
To encourage growth, I've been pruning back the plants, removing leaves from the lower levels of the plants and thinning them around areas of flower/pepper.The only thing to decide is when I should pick the chillis? Now for a mild flavour and use a few in a thai green curry? Or later, when they are fat, red and full of fire to spice up some buritos?

Man or Mouse?
