A brace of c. flexuosum, pic from 8/4.

The larger plant is very intolerant of sun, gets
wilted even under the canopy’s filtered light.
There is a berry or two buried inside the small-
er plant’s foliage, otherwise just dropping hun-
dreds of flowers all Spring and Summer long.
My bad, the berry is actually on the larger plant.
Here's a pic of the only berry on two plants :rolleyes:

Some pods on plants.

Most of my CAP 500 (C.eximium) plants are starting to ripen up

Tiny, early, pods on C.flexuosum ripening, bigger pods yet to come

The small C.galapagoense plant I have outside is now also showing some pods

And C.lanceolatum

Nice batch o’ berries, @ChilliCrosser. Hoping to
see a few ripe berries on my wilds before the
end of September :lol:

just a mound of foliage, but has finally be-
gun to extend some forking branches. No-
thing but runty Spring Suck berries.

Volunteer ‘Yellow Pequin’, most likely a cross
with one of the purple varieties, probably the
same one that crossed with the Pequin ‘Uvalde’.

This plant has a very stout ‘trunk’ for a yearling!

Really hefty ’berries’ on this specimen. Green
pods with purple shading on the sunny side.

The Pequin Rojo ‘Chihuahua’ is setting nice, big round pods
at a decent clip.

C. chacoense, purple flower. Almost died
in the Spring Suck, so it was pruned back
hard, but in the last week has really ramped
up flowering and setting berries, and turned
into a nice plant. Pic taken on 8/4.

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 ofmy 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.
Trimmed some bottom branches off the Pequin 'Uvalde'
green. You can see the large size of the leaves and pods.
I bit off the end of the pod and holy moly, immediate tongue
and lip burn from the tip of the pod. I don't know if Pequins
are generally that hot, maybe it speaks to the pepper it cross-
ed with.

This plant has really loaded up with berries in
the week since this pic was taken. If it stays
healthy, it should be very productive.
This plant has really loaded up with nice large
(for a chiltepin 😉) berries!
Should be plenty of Summer ripening weather.
Can't wait to see those beautiful coffee-colored
fruit!

The c. rhomboidium I grew early on had exactly
that same growth habit. It’s great you have a space
where it can grow unimpeded. Very nice specimen!
