PaulG very kindly sent me a large assortment of aji Amarillo seed way back last November, and I planted a bunch from two different baggies, one marked F5 and one marked aji Amarillo Peruvian 2015.

 

Two of the plants that grew out of the aji Amarillo Peruvian I do not believe are, and I didn't get real suspicious until blossoms opened. I PMed Paul and he has no idea, so you guys get to take a stab at it.

 

The suspect:

Note that this plant is producing WAY more flowers than any of the amarillos, and the flower stems droop significantly:

The blossoms themselves are half the size of amarillos and bear no petal artwork whatsoever. Also the obvious: Purple on the inside. PaulG thinks a cross, perhaps a Bhut-Jolokia, me? This is my first exotic grow, guys... :high: I'd have to make it up....

Oh, and like I told PaulG, my apologies for the camera work. We can't all be Geonerd or Dragonsfire or Pepper-guru or JHP or......  :violin:

 

But thanks for any input!!

 Until you get pods it will be almost impossible to guess  what it is . 1st plant has very chinense like attributes .

Awl--righty then, commencin' to wait for poddin' up..... :high:

 

One question; can chinense or pubescenes cross with bacatum? If so, there may be an isolation issue...

Don't remember where I got this "cross" chart from....

Excellent chart, and so simple I now feel embarrassed for asking the question...Thank you.

 

I've gone through and am now for sure I have FOUR of these which came from the packet labeled aji Amarillo Peruvian. Being so new to this I can't see the slightest relation between these and the amarillos, I'm sure glad that Frank has faith...I'm not sure these will be an Amarillo cross or just some seeds that accidentally found their way into the packet...

 

It would appear that the pubescens don't play nice with any of the others....

Well shoot, maybe we don't figure this one out after all. Two weeks of vigorous blooming and not one fruit setting. I in fact haven't seen an anther with any pollen on it.

 

Three plants total from these aji Amarillo seed, and none wants to set fruit.

Your corolla is white, so that rules out C. pubescens, which are purple. The calyx on it could pass for C.chinense or C.annuum, but doubtful C.frutescens, even though the stamens look dark enough for C. frutescens. Its a very interesting plant you have. I can see traits of four species in it! The leaves could pass for C. baccatum even though the corolla clearly is not! Crazy!

Actually I didn't. Thanks for the input. All of these are flowering, just not setting any fruit nor producing pollen, like I said. The seeds were mixed in with some aji Amarillo sent from Peru. from what I planted I believe about a third of them grew to be these.
