The Makings of a Chilli

I was undergoing my daily chilli plant check, and paying particular attention to the sole flower in bloom on Cellia, when I noticed she’d clearly been visited by a bee and pollinated. Here’s a picture, look closely at the center of the flower:

That right there is the very early beginnings of a chilli pepper. I believe as it grows the flower, having completed its purpose, will die back to reveal the growing chilli. It’s a very exciting moment and I’m looking forward to having this first chilli when it is fully grown.
