So I ate one of the pods and to my surprise there was a little bit of heat. Nothing crazy, very low heat, but there was definitely a little bite. Really exciting. One of the plants is absolutely covered in flowers and is starting to form pods all over the plant. Its going to be a super producer. I havent gotten to try a pod off that plant yet but they are looking like the other pods.
keep this thread updated and save lots of seeds.

OK, so if you've lived in Costa Rica, I don't need to tell you that Costa Ricans aren't big on getting technical about things. Even addresses don't have numbers. (I was joking about our people living in "la casa verde fea al lado del amarillo mas feo") In that vein, I was unable to get you a positive ID on these. We even had a horticulturist in our camp, who couldn't identify them.
So you're on your own. Make up a name. Give it a Costa Rican name. Might I suggest, "The sweet but not hot one that nobody knows the name of" - or TSBNHOTNKTNO, for short.
Sorry, best I could do...

Now to the plants. They are still pushing out peppers as the days are getting shorter and the sun begins to drop below the row of pine trees to the south of my garden. Im thinking in a few more weeks my plants wont be getting any direct sunlight. Anyways, Ive picked plenty of peppers and have saved plenty of seeds. If anyone is interested in trading or if you dont have anything to trade and just want some please send me a private message and I would be more than happy to send some your way.
Hope everyone is well and you had a fruitful summer. I know Im ready for some cooler weather. Its almost here.

I happen to be a local, but I don't think I've ever seen anything like that before.
Would you mind telling me where you foraged thoses peppers?
I could make some quick research with a little bit more of detail from the zone.

I found the plant in Playa Jaco. I couldnt tell you exactly where because I dont entirely remember. But I was somewhere close to the bomberos.
Probably something one of the local surf bums smuggled in. I notice a lot of those guys sell hot sauce...
