Cool looking long bean lol
What kind of heat do they have? hear their more flavorful then Cayenne.

haven't got a ripe one yet.

i grew thunder mountain longhorn and joes long to see which of these "long" cayenne is best. Another one is whippets tail but i didn't get seeds for that one.

i think most of these originated from the same source (like 20+ years ago) but have been relabeled / selected for different traits now so they are a bit different.

There is one true phenotype, if yours look/taste different then you should accept that you got incorrect/untrue seeds and use a new source next year, not just keep growing it and give it a similar name.

relabeling a variety based on grade of pods is not correct either. just because the pods you got from say bob joe are A+ grade doesn't mean you need to name them scotch bonnet bob joe. it is simply scotch bonnet.
You never know he could have just presented you with the best pods from multiple plants, or maybe his growing conditions are just better than yours.
Or maybe he truly has better genetics. But it is still simply scotch bonnet...

It does make sense to keep track of what seed source has performed better for you. I guess people just got lazy and just relabeled the variety name.
Or you can take a more cynical look and say these names are differentiated to increase sales.
Distinguishing your product from the cheaper normal yellow scotch bonnet seeds, generating hype because it's "new", giving it a premium feel.

this is kinda the problem with naming varieties, there is no control. anyone could get seed from anyone and relabel it. (see the primo/reaper doubt/conspiracy *whether it's true or not*)
