I don't mean sweet as in no heat but like sweet like a fruit. Does anyone know a really sweet kind? (It can be spicy)

Sugar rush (c.baccatum) could be your thing.

+1 for Sugar Rush

of the phenotypes i have grown, i found the cream round pheno to be the sweetest sugar rush

with all of them they get so much sweeter if you leave them on the plant until fully mature 

another C. baccatum  i find to be sweet and delicious is Aji Fantasy. 

 

This year i am growing an interesting C. annuum   named Violet Sparkle

that is said to be bland when picked immature, but sweet like honey if allowed to mature to a deep dark red.  We shall see

Firstly, find the nearest bin and toss that thing you call a phone. Then buy a Samsung.  :rofl:

I really like those little lunchbox peppers(there goes my street cred)

I have a few sugar rush varieties that I am excited to try out.

Violet sparkle sounds good

Any thick walled annuum tend to get really sweet when matured. The sweetest I've tasted is a bell pepper honestly..

Personally, I'll eat a pig's ass if they cook it right.   -CB4-

A few of the middle eastern bell types are supposed to be sweet with minor heat. Antep Aci Dolma being one of the hotter ones. Similar to a jalapeno in heat.

 

Vendor in Australia.   http://chilli-seedz....ntep-aci-dolma/

 

My ripe jalapenos were really sweet last year. The powder was so sweet it tasted like it had added sugar. I cut a few in quarters lengthwise and dried them. Ate several like a candy stick. :D

Can you tell us the heat level you are after? You've got people here suggesting bells, when you clearly stated "chilli" pepper. ;)

+1 for Aji Fantasy and Sugar Rush.

 

Brazilian Starfish and Yellow Monkey Face are very sweet and tasty varieties as well.

agreed with walchit on the little snacking peppers they sell at the store. No heat whatsoever but a pretty refreshing snack with some ranch dip or whatever. For something with a little more heat then I agree with going for some of the aji/baccatum varieties. Letting them sit as long as you can on the plant (as mentioned above) will help intensify the sugars a little more too. The fact that wild peppers are almost exclusively spread by avians is no coincidence. Birds will rarely eat the unripe pods and would rather go for ripe ones because this is when the sugars and other flavonoids (also seed quality) are at their peak making them more appealing to them, and us.

I thought hot paper lantern had good sweetness followed by decent heat.
I also love those tiny snacking peppers sold at most grocery stores
