My first hot pepper I grew was an Orange Habanero I purchase from Home Depot. It had orange fruit already growing, so had to be right.
I grew dozens of these and put them in the freezer, waiting until I had enough for my hot sauce. After signing up this forum and reading tons of post on mislabeled peppers, I decided to try one.
I'm posting this as a lesson, not really needing a pepper I.D.
The pepper turned out to be a mini bell pepper. From this day forth I swear I will try the first pepper that ripens hehe
