Variegated Jalapeno Grow Log

So a couple years back when I was working on a commercial grow for a greenhouse I spotted this guy when I was sorting through a few dozen of our Jalapenos in 512 cell trays.  It wasn't likely to be a cross, as the seeds came from isolated seed stock from a company that only sells to nurseries. None of the other plants we had ended up looking like this. I was keeping a close eye on them.  We didn't offer any variegated peppers there at the time, so I had a hunch it was something special.  I took it home with me and tossed it in a SOLO cup.

A bit later on that season I snapped a few more pics of the plant.

I waited for the pods to ripen and saved seeds, hoping for good things.   They took a long time to ripen and were quite corked.  Unfortunate that I didn't think to take better photos at the time:

Shortly afterwards I started some of those seeds and these guys turned up:

This is about as far as I managed with them, as I moved three hours away and started a new job.  Many of my plants were severely neglected for a span of a few months and all but one of them kicked the bucket.  I'm happy that I sent out seeds for these to several folks (who did have success with them!) and I am starting to grow some more thanks to Paul G and Chris Phillips.

That's where I am right now!  Hopefully Canedog, Paul and Chris will chime in with their experience growing them.

Cheers.

Finally seeing some buds on the white white.
 
White green (not photographed) is also has some buds and is much further along.
Awesome to see some flowering on that specimen, PM.
You are right about the slower growth on the white/ivory
foliage. Not only slower growth, but smaller pods from
fewer Flowers.
 
The  plant from the white pod seed has produced a nice batch of
normal Goliath Jalapeños. This pic from June 12, all these pods
are red now:

The ivory/white variegated pods ripen to red and orange, with the 
ivory/white variegation turning orange:

Harvested a few variegated pods. The ivory parts
turn orange, and the green parts, red. All of these
had great variegation:

The variegated pods are all on the small side,
with a big shoulder and tapering quickly:

These are pretty much all isolated seeds from
the indoor portion of the grow:

Sorry to double post. The wonk factor was in full 
operation just now. Be glad when the new site
comes online.

Sampled one of the pods.
 
You can see the red and orange coloration
of the ripe variegated pods:

Ate about a third of the pod. No jalapeño taste,
heat on the tongue and sides of mouth for about
10 minutes:

Looks amazing!
 
We have finally a pod coming in with the stripes on it.
 
 
As excited I am for it I am really pumped for this near all ivory pod to open.
 
Alright, PM. Good to see some pods coming in for ya.
 
The striped pod is very cool. 
 
I am hoping someone will get some full-sized variegated
pods. The ones I'm getting are hot large, maybe thumb size.
