'Peach' peppers on eBay...

There is a pepper variety from a Chinese seed company (but sold by various vendors there) which has a very peculiar, but attractive appearance; The peppers look like mini peaches. I was wondering has anyone grown this variety before and do they really look like that in real life?

I'm not familiar with a "peach" pepper but you may want to check out the link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: eBay

Thanks for the caveat Ottawapepper. I've been burned on ebay many times. So that thread gave me a chuckle lol. But the 'peach' pepper seeds are really cheap and that wouldn't be much of a loss. I was just hoping to see if someone had grown this variety or even has a picture. Or if anyone knows a very similar-looking variety I can get from a more repubtable place.
Thanks

It's probably a "peach" habanero...or a Fatalii pepper mislabeled as a peach hab (seen it).

Who knows when you're buying some home gardener or seed re-seller's stock. I've had enough issues with seed trades online getting mystery and mixed genetic outcomes.

Here's a pic of the seed packet...

That is most definitely not a peach hab or a fatalii...but it is pretty.

I've never seen that ornamental, myself.

Last year I grew a Pimenta de Bico that looks somewhat similar to the pods in your picture. If you're interested, send me an email via my profile, i can send you some "eBay free" seed... and the stamp will be on me ;-))

Well, here's the results guys. I have had trouble growing tomatoes and peppers this year so it's not much, but I did get something that looks remotely like a peach. It has more width when viewed from a side angle (this shows the narrow angle). The color isn't as pretty as the seed packet, but I can't wait to taste this.
Ottawapepper, thanks for your kind offer, I totally missed it. :(

Thanks for the update. Sorry about your season.

Sorry to hear your season wasn't as fruitful as you expected.

My offer is still open if you want to try growing from some non-isolated Pimenta de Bico seeds.
