My bad, the berry is actually on the larger plant.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.
Nice batch o’ berries, @ChilliCrosser. Hoping toSome 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
The Pequin Rojo ‘Chihuahua’ is setting nice, big round podsPequin Rojo ‘Chihuahua’, pic on 8/6, #2NC container.

The purple flower c. chacoense is flowering and setting some pods.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.

Trimmed some bottom branches off the Pequin 'Uvalde'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.
This plant has really loaded up with nice largeCapucinno Chiltepín, pic 8/4.

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.
Judging by the looks of that plant, there will be plenty of flowers and berries when it does start to produce!I see everyone is doing great with the wilds! I took some pictures of my rhomboideum over the weekend, this plant has already reached 1.5M in height but no flowers yet!
