I have 2 going too, maybe a little bit bigger than those since I started seeds in Dec, potted next to Peter peppers for comparion. So far so good. Will take pictures as they get bigger.

I have one here also. Mine is still pretty small but putting on its second set of leaves. They were difficult to start. I started maybe 10 seeds. 3 germinated and two of those had terminal helmet head.

I read the original post on these and I am very happy to have one. Looks like a pretty nice pepper. I am wondering what kind of heat we are looking at with these.

Here is my picture of a Saint Peter. Id say it is a around 6" so far. The smaller one is behind it since it popped up later. Both are doing well so far.

The Red Peter on the left (not pictured here) is a little bit bigger. Leaves look the same. Seeds popped at the same time.
St Peters are harder to germinate.

I am growing Bishop's Crown, :)

St. Peter is pretty warm - I'd say in the habanero range.

RE: Hey DMForcier

Anyone get one of these to grow to production size?

RE: Hey DMForcier

I've got at least 3. My garden was flooded thus losing all Id tags. I'll be in contact for Id reasons

RE: Hey DMForcier

Yes Sir. Lots of flowers. Waiting on the pods any day now.

My other one is still small. I do not know what happened to that one. Its flowering and bushy. Hopefully it will still grow up with all this heat were having in CA.

Ron.

I have one as well. Ill try to get a pic posted tomorrow. Don't think I have any pods yet but I should be pretty close.

RE: Hey DMForcier

Ron, St. Peter was much bigger than the normal peters. (I mean the plant, o dirty-minded reader!) Perhaps your second one is reverting to its parent's form. It will be very interesting to see what pods the little one produces.

Thanks, all, for the update. Mama died when Alabama froze over so I do hope some of these come true. (I do still have a stock of seeds, though.)

DM, as soon as the pods form, I will post a picture. If there is seeds, I can resend you some so you can continue your experiment with Year 3 version.

St Peter. No pods yet but should be soon. I do have some Peters that have pods though. Mine is looking quite a bit different than the other one posted here. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.

RE: Hey DMForcier

1st pod of Saint Peter on the small bush. The larger bush has yet to produce.


 o
RE: Hey DMForcier

Is that a pod to the lower right? Looks about right but let's not judge based on the first pod.

Thanks,
Dennis

RE: Hey DMForcier

Yes, lower right. Left side are closed flowers.

look right?


 o
RE: Hey DMForcier

Looks right to me, though the long one is a little longer than I remember. The small one is a dead ringer for the smaller late-season pods.

The real test will be the odor when you open them up. Should smell of a certain flower petal...

Thanks!
Dennis

RE: Hey DMForcier

As soon as one turns I'll open one up. What kind of heat level should I expect?


 o
RE: Hey DMForcier

Not too hot. Somewhere around serrano IIRC.

RE: Hey DMForcier

Those do not look like my small plant pod. Mine has more folds, not as smooth.

Lets see how it gets as it gets bigger.

RE: Hey DMForcier

Has anyone had any turn color yet? I've been harvest a bunch of every species in my garden except for the st. Peter. No color at all yet.


 o
RE: Hey DMForcier

No color yet, but my bigger bush as a few good size pods.

The small pod looks stunted and has not grown any bigger then the last picture shown.
