Default Enjoya pepper / stripped sweet bell pepper

I know people tried to grow seed from the Enjoya pepper, which resulted in all yellow peppers. Has anyone actually tried to tissue culture the stem? I know someone wrote a blog post about the biotech behind it.

Presumably, if you were to tissue culture the one part of the plant always left with the fruit (which is usually still green/live), you'd get a true clone of the parent, which you could further propagate with cuttings. You probably could never sell the plant for profit short of royalty fees or licensing or whatever. But putting aside the legal stuff, I wonder if anyone has even attempted to see if it could be replicated.

It's been a while since I did a tissue culture of plants, but it's on my mind recently since I did Apple rootstocks.
