Good to see your CAP 500 delivering the goods. Mine are doing fine with pods too but since a few of our heatwaves seem to be discarding leaves in the heat.c. eximium (CAP 500) has grown a lot in the
heat waves. #2NC container (about 1.5 gal.)
Handles the heat waves pretty well. Another
one coming next week, so it will have an op-
portunity to do so, again.
H x W: 42" x 41" (107 cm x 105 cm)
Toothy calyx and beautiful flowers.
Seems to be setting berries pretty consistently.

You are my hero, @CraftyFox!!Found the original Uvalde Wild seed last night..
I know PaulG and CaneDog need some true ones.. I've got enough here to share with a few other people too. There was no other peppers growing in her yard, so I'd like to see you pull a hybrid off these.
@CaneDog - I know what you mean, It's hard toThose guys are looking great, Paul. Nice to see the full-body shots with good backgrounds. My PF Chacoense just started to flower a few days ago, so there's hope for it getting to the finish line this season.
Here’s a shot of the Pequin Uvalde ‘purple’.My Pequin Uvalde (my seeds from 2020) plants are
both crossed, I think. The green plant is tall and rangy
with much larger leaves The flowers are white, and
the pods a little larger and not erect.
The 'purple'plant definitely picked up some genetics from one of my purple varieties.
Edit: Add 'purple' uvalde fower. In real life, there are
faint purple lines on the backs of the petals.
You can see a little purple on the flower bud in this picture.
Neither plant has erect pods like my original from
@Crafty Fox did. Would really like to grow a true
variety of these. Going to have to see if there are
any of his original seeds left in my Wilds box.
