Pepper Plant ID Anyone?

Zill(z9 AZ)March 24, 2010

Hi Arizonans:

I know it's not considered proper to cross-post, but I asked on the Hot Pepper Gallery, and the people there seem to be mainly Texas. And these peppers are not very hot.

I bought an unlabeled pepper at the Desert Botanical Garden sale, and am having trouble with the ID. The pods are about 1 1/2" long and 1/2" wide, the seeds are white, and the taste is similar to a ripe bell pepper with a tiny after-tingle. I initially thought jalapeno, but the fruits are smallish and so sweet and mild. Thank you for any help you can give in pinning this thing down!
