I don't think it is real, but if it is that's kinda neat!
Initially I was on the photo shopped band wagon until I saw this, UF Pepper Diseases - Chimera. If you click on the link in the OP, Link to the imgur gallery, and look at the leaf pic then the one in the FU article I'm thinking hum... Then the next two pix I found kinda puts the cherry on top.
Along with learning how to cross I'd advise investigating what you get when you cross.> Tomato Gene Basics On page two of that article are charts on how many generations it takes to stabilize a cross so I ask the question, "Are you willing to dedicate 16 years to get a 'stable' cross?" You need to grow out the first pair for 8 years, selecting the pod shape you want to save seeds from then the target cross for 8 more. I'm not trying to pi$$ on your parade, just making sure you know what you're getting into.
