Two things that will light your fire, the pepper is what I call Purple Fatali. The seed was an accidental cross. Plant and peppers are purple, then ripen to red. Cutting them up for seed smells like a bowl of cherries.

Depends on who is buying them where they are buying them and what kind they are.

We are having a big local food store buying 13 Sav A lot stores today, in this area. They promote local produce. I think they are getting a sampler pack soon.

Here you go. This is the plant in the greenhouse, fighting off the weeds and morning glory vines.

These are Chile Conga, or at least supposed to be. The second pic is more like Tall Chile Conga and Short Chile Conga, due to crossed seeds.
