I brought these seeds believing they were Hinkelhatz, but they seem very different to that plant. Tall at 4-5ft, with sparse large leaves. The chillis themselves seems to be approx 8cm. I know it's hard to do from photos but does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks

thats a shame as Pepper I.D seems to be a wasteland. It's not like 'Growing Peppers' has a massive influx of activity.

Thanks for the responce, the chillies themselves look very similar, but the plants less so. Mine have rather large leaves and far less in comparison.

Who did you buy seeds from? Can/did you contact them about this issue?
 
Your pix look like many other C. annuum peppers especially Thai. Other than that I haven't a clue.

 

Quick question, iphone or android?

I can't remember now who i brought them from, but most likly via Amazon, and from an old account (doing the Prime juggle). So they are not looking like Hinkelhatz then?

 

Also Android, if that's any help.

yes it could be a thai pepper. many thai plants have pods that grow upright but some grow hanging down. did you taste one yet? the heat level may give a clue. thai should be hotter than serrano.

They look like serranos to me. Looks very similar to my plant, along with the peppers.

Annuum of some sort.  Probably great in a salsa or blistered on the plancha and added to a burrito or fajitas.    


Many people have eaten food from my kitchen and have gone on to lead normal, healthy lives.

I know there are multiple strains of Serrano I've never seen but the OP's pic has very pointed pods, see his pic below, so I'm not jumping up and down over your ID.... YMMV

Edit:

 

So I was looking for something but found below...Note the Serrano has a rounded point? Not the straight taper of OP's.

Oddly confrontational, especially seeing the sub forum this has been posted in. I'm sure there are people here with a keener chilli eye then me. Hence the post. A image search brings up a lot of very similar looking Chillis to my eyes, and is what almost anyone would try before making a forum post.

 

Better quality photos, give more detail, more detail is more information.
