I bought some St. Lucia Yellow Seasoning Pepper seeds from a vendor on Etsy.


The seeds germinated OK, but the peppers are not yellow (they mature to red), and it's fairly hot (not a seasoning pepper).


The peppers are definitely a Chinense.  They have that distinctive Chinense flavor, and a heat level that I would estimate on the low end of the Habanero range.  Much hotter than my annuums, but not nearly my hottest Hab.


While I was disappointed at first, this plant has gone on to impress me in a few ways.


The plant has some distinctive purple coloration on the stalk and on the peppers as they mature.  It's not a strongly purple as some pepper plants I've seen, but it has a portion of that trait.




The plant is one of my most prolific, maturing to a red pepper about the size of a quarter.




For me this is a plant with a lot of peppers!




I consider this pepper plant a keeper, but I'd like to know it's name, or at least the name of some peppers that are similar to this plant.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can think of.

what are these? Supposed to be Charapita:

Looks like we need to add Etsy?
