Seeds were gifted me and marked Jay's Red Ghost Scorpion.
Its a mild to Medium heat pepper, plant is a big bushy Aji type looks to me. Pods are crunchy and firm with a bit of sweetness.

Could be Dedo de Moca if it's actually a C. baccatum. Are the flowers white and yellow?
I'll have to check the flowers tomorrow, I didnt play close attention to them. I'll post back with picks and such, thx for taking the time to answer.

I am revisiting this thread to post another pic. All pods are starting to look like this now, the first couple ripe one picture above were contorted. So I thought I would share the more uniform looking pod shapes. Its very big also, fits across my palm.

Dedo de moca is my best guess, that's definitely a C. baccatum
I have some more pictures to share. These peppers are quite large so not sure if they are Dedo De Moca, could they also be Aji Colorado?
I wish Aji Joe could take a look at these!

The coloration matches Dedos, and most of them I've grown have been around 3-4" but not quite that wide. I've never had Aji Colorado so I don't really have anything to go by with those. Looks like a good baccy whatever they are

Thx Helvete, much appreciated. Its a fantastic pepper so I will grow again for sure.
The size and health of the peppers may just be the beneficiary of Rabbit poop I amended to soil when planting. I grow mostly in 5 gallon buckets so I filled my buckets 3/4 of the way up then layered an inch of rabbit poop and finished filling with soil and the plant.

Can I help it if I'm one of those fanatical TD fans?I got my #3 Demonic jersey on, my face is painted, and I cant stop yelling WOOOOOO!!

I'ver grown the Yellow Amarillo and the Orange, and to me this chili is not an Amarillo. It went straight from green to red, never a hint of another color.
Is there such a thing as a Red Amarillo pepper?
If Ajijoe says they are Amarillo I guess its possible they are some kind of cross?
Its a really fantastic pepper though, I am growing agin next year for sure!
