RE: pepper ID

Hi roadkill, looks like the white hab may be Jaloro Jalapeno, or possibly some sort of cross with a bolivian rainbow. Based on the pepper size the tepin looks like that's what it is. Hopefully others weigh in would like some other ideas for the supposed white hab.

RE: pepper ID

The yellow podded one looks like the plants I got from the nursery called Guarrito,Yellow pickling pepper.
Mine look just like your picture.
They ripen to red.

Completely amazing how the nurseries and seed companies get away with selling mislabeled plants like this. I think that in most cases, it is intentional and I would have to stay away from that brand or that seller if it happened to me unless of course you really don't care and enjoy the surprise.

RE: pepper ID

hey hi all thx for the help and fast answers
with limited space surprise plants are not always great but they are growin

tepin pictures i have looked at seem to be round ball shape. with out purple leaves

i have not tried one of the orange ones as i gave this plant to a friend who wanted to grow something hot, i guess i better go get one to taste

RE: pepper ID

Hi roadkill I viewed the pic on my iPhone when you could not match to pics of the tepin I tried zooming into the pic and when i did those are no tepin peppers. Not sure what they are but they look nice though. Anyone see this type of pepper?

RE: pepper ID

definately no tepin, the are tiny round and grow straight up plus the shape of the leaves and growth patterns is all wrong, tepins are wilds and grow unlike any other domesticated cultivar Ive ever seen, they are fun to grow and are delicious though, as for that second plant, it looks like some sort of pinguita de mono cross or similar, cant tell you for sure my eyes arent that trained yet, good luck though it looks great!

RE: pepper ID

I have a similar plant called Purple Pequin.
No buds yet but I think it had white buds with purple outlines on them.
There are several peppers similar to the purple plant pictured.
Explosive Ember , Firecracker Pequin , Purple Pequin , Bellingrath Gardens ornamental,Peruvian Purple Pequin.

Explosive ember

Labled as Purple Pequin by nursey...White or Purple and white flowered(I forget).

RE: pepper ID

hi thx for the input i tasted one of the small ones not very hot, you can tell there is heat, lots of flavor almost a sweet pepper taste, would probably be good for cooking with

leaves dark purple almost charcoal and green
flowers 6 petal are white and purple together
