    pod What kind of pepper is this?

    It happens. One of the plants I bought this year was supposed to be a ghost. It was from the same nursery as all of the other peppers I bought and they all performed well. This particular “ghost” plant gave smooth walled smaller peppers with absolutely zero heat 🤷‍♂️. Here’s one of the “ghost”...
