Can you help identify this pepper plant I forgot to label?

KudosFromUdoMay 9, 2012

I labeled all my superhots and exotic pepper plants but some of the more common peppers I didn't label and I have one weird pepper plant that throws a lot of flowers but doesn't produce fruit just 4 little stems out the middle of the flower. I think the seed pkg was labeled Jalapeno Grande

If I don't see any peppers soon I think I am just going to pull it up. All my other pepper plants this size are full of fruit.

That sure looks different than a typical pepper plant. I would be interested to know also what variety it is. Hopefully some of the experienced guys out there can point you in the right direction.

Me neither. I also have one on the other side of the house, in the area I rowed for my tomatoes and other peppers, that is exactly like this one. All my peppers were grown inside and then transplanted when they were at least 8" tall. I am pretty sure this one was supposed to be the Jalapeno Grande. Looks like one of the seed companies(suppliers) screwed up.

Hey, don't just pull the poor fella. Now I want to know what the heck it is. Give the blooms a chance to set and see what happens. Then report back. LOL.

But hey, seriously, I totally understand if you want it out of your way.

It's not a pepper.
I know what it is but can't think of it right now.
The flower is a dead give away as to what it is....I know what it is but can't think of it...
Maybe Jerusalem Cherry/Perrsimmons Ornamental...

So, does it get any fruit and what are they like? Might be fun to grow anyway.

Lazy....
Might not be Jerusalem Cherry but in that family.
Might be something else you had seeds for but not a pepper.
I know what it is but I gotta stop thinking about it or I'll never remenber.

I'm sure glad smoke pointed that out, though! Kudos - If you aren't sure, don't eat it!!

I have 3 purple tomatillo plants growing and they don't look like this one and their blossoms are yellow not white. Plus the seeds for tomatillos are small and I would have immediately recognized it as a non pepper(even though I am a gardening newbie, I know at least this much). I started and transplanted all my peppers first, so this plant would have to have larger seeds, similar to a pepper in size.

Jerusalem Cherry/Perssimmin's Ornamental seeds look just like Pepper seeds.
