I planted seeds from a wild plant which I believe to be chile pequin. Many germinated in about 2 weeks. If they are pequin can I expect them to bear fruit by this October or will the plants have to be wintered over indoors?
I ran here when I thought it said "penguins".
Puiquin make fruit in 60-90 days from small plants.

LOL paceyswitters! I too find speed reading a constant source of entertainment.
Thanks, Willard. That is very encouraging.
Pequin and chiltepin produce like crazy. My overwintered tepin is already producing like wild!!
Did your tepin produce on the first season very much, Reyna?
I am reading more and more that they are mainly productive as annuals and take more than a season to produce ripe fruit.
Now I'm less encouraged. The site linked by Willard says, "120 days or more from transplants, better yields the second year", which is in line with a couple of the previous posts. Looks like it will be a close call to get ripe fruit in one growing season.
