Jalapenos to cherries to jalapenos

Really, just an update. A few weeks ago I posted a photo of my jalapenos that didn't look like jalapenos.

Some folks suggested they might be cherry peppers, which I was very happy about.

Well--they never grew after I posted the photo, remaining exactly the same size. And lo and behold, new peppers started appearing that are looking just like jalapenos should look. I cut off the little round peppers and it seems they had no seeds in them. Just unfertilized peppers, I guess. So, now I have way too many jalapeno plants and may have to force myself to eat stuffed jalapenos at least twice a week.

I am new to growing peppers. It is a learning experience for me.

They do look like Cherry Bomb.

I agree, Stoney, that they look like cherry peppers that I have seen photos of. Wish they were, too. But they are exactly what I bought, regular jalapenos, when I was too impatient to find the bigger jalapenos. Well there is always next year--or I may give a look in nearby nurseries for a hot cherry plant.

Do you have a pic of the jalapeno peppers from the same plant?

You should be able to find cherry bomb plants..they are not to hard to find.
One of my local nurseries had live plants this year.

Do you have a picture of the new pods?

Is it possible that you have a Jalapeno and cherry growing next to each other ?
Another possibility: You have crossed plant.

Stuffed jalapenos twice a week? Oh, I feel Sooooo sorry for you :P

Early season pods are often deformed due to moisture and/or temperature fluctuations interrupting the plant's uptake of Calcium and Nitrogen.

Here is a photo I just took. Definitely jalapenos, I think. Yes, the little round ones never grew and had no seeds. So, in the future, I will wait and see before I think I have the wrong peppers.

Thanks for all the helpful comments. Maybe the next photos I send will be of stuffed jalapenos!
