My best guess is a Serrano Tampique�o, or just Serrano for short. About 1/2 the size, double the Scoville Heat Units (SHU) of a jalape�o. Flavor is reminiscent.

Do you have any possible choices?

I think it looks too pointy / pendant to be a serrano. The cap doesn't look right for a serrano either.

Yes, Serrano are usually rounded to less of a point - similar to a Jalape�o and with a different cap than shown. Plus I don't think Serrano carry that blossom (what ever it is called) strand @ the point. They are also tubular like the Jalape�o but with a slight curve.
Those look 2 me 2 be in the Chinese family because of the appearance of the pepper, how many are growing @ each branching and the wider/thinner leaves.
Well that's it 4 my experience, Good Luck.

Sorry, something strange happened to the word 'Jalapeno' between review and post.
All my best, Pic-Z

it is kind of flat but bumpy, sorta like a tongue, but then it comes to a point sorta like a scorpions tail, it is turning into a good little bush it is 3 1/2 ft tall and now has 15 pods growing w/ many more flowers, but im not sure what it is? was just told it was the hottest thing he ever tasted by a friend that gave me the seeds which also leads me to believe it is chinense

Any gold on the buds?
Looks like it could be a Baccatum type pod...But I don't think they have more than 1 pod per node.

Possibly a Chinense.

speaking of seaweed and fish, thanks to all of you on this forum, I just found you all at the end of may and what a difference, this last month has made, from potting mix to fertilizer I believe this first year of pepper growing will be much more prolific thanks to you, as of this morning I have over 400 chiles and a few hundred more flowers growing, and "I am as giddy as a schoolgirl" ;) but seriously thank you all good luck may your bhuts be bhuts and may your harvests be bountiful!
your new friend,
Paul

The more mature pods look like they might be Paper Lantern-C.Chinense.

gotta wait to see if they are red.

this was one of the first seeds planted this year, the seeds were given to me by a buddy who saved them cuz he knew I was growing chiles for the first time this year, he said he got the chiles from his uncle not sure where or when, just that they were red and gnarly looking and the hotest thing he's ever eaten, of course he doesn't eat his peppers quite as hot as i do, but I figured if they are the hottest thing he's ever eaten they gotta be worth growing out! that was my thought process anyway, just thought it might be fun to know what they were cuz the pods are coming in in several different shapes and look pretty wild, but I am planning on growing some natural crossbreeds next year, I figure I got about 20 varieties all in my back yard and Im sure to get some cool crosses, new flavors and or color combinations for next year, whaddya think?

interestingly enough, out of 15 seeds that he saved only 4 germinated, out of the 4 only this 1 survived hardening off and transplanting, so I suppose it's lucky to be alive;)

just a little update this plant is up to 47 pods, and is loaded w/ more blossoms about 35 or 40 more to say that it is prolific is the undestatement of the century I think. If these pepper taste half as good as they look in 4 or 5 weeks i will be in chile heaven! :)

They look like red paper lanterns to me as well, but still too early to tell.

Post a few pictures of them ripened. With multiple pictures of ripened fruit, we should be able to tell. Though if they turn out red i think we'll all know what they are.

Glad they're producing well for ya!

first one started ripening today. its turning orange, if this is a precursor to red I dont know the original chiles which the seeds came from were red but this is definately orange! it is significantly different than any of the others that have ripened red all the cayennes and serranos have started @ the bottom and ripened up this is ripening from the top down also

Beautiful...!
I love it when the pods turn that Caltrans road-cone orange ;-)
Different peppers go through different colors/changes as they ripen....
my guess is that these'll ripen through to red. I think my Arbols started
at the shoulder of the pepper, too, and exhibited that flourescent orange.

Next step....reporting on the taste!

Got home from work and it was red so I pulled it off and ate it, it was delicious! nice crisp, clear pepper flavor slightly citrus with a decent heat and a nice after taste! cant wait to get some more, I think these will make a nice sauce
