I took these from my Iphone and from there was able to post to the forum.Thank you for the instructions oakley.You can see that the one plant has the bonnet shaped peppers that they should look like and my other has long shaped peppers around 1 to 2 inches long.Same pepper and same looking plant.Seeds from the same package.Only thing I can think of is I miss labeled the seedlings but I was very careful when I transplanted.But I have messed up before.

Jamaican hot red is a good pepper but no where near as good as habanero or ghost.
The plants look astounding.

I think peppers have become so popular lately that there are a lot of seed producers who don't isolate their flowers and cross pollination is becoming an issue. I bought seeds for Trinidad Moruga Scorpion in 2017 and the fruit on the plant came out like Pink Tiger. I wasn't too disappointed because the peppers are quite amazing, and I even overwintered the plant to get the same peppers this year. You very may well have some crossed variety in one of your plants. Since they are supposed to be bonnet shaped and one is not, there has to be either a cross, mislabel, or unstable variety. I would think this variety should be stable. There's a lot of new stuff out there that isn't fully stable. Your plants look identical.

Thanks Worth,I don't think I want to try ghost peppers as that's more heat than I want.The Red Hot is close to the Habanero in heat and may try that next year.I'm very happy the way the garden is doing.Using my grass clippings with a half bale of straw left over from last season along with alfalfa pellets and Tomato Tone.We had rain yesterday and more coming today.Nothing seems better than rain water.Must be the acid rain effect

Really crazy how that happened.They seem identical as plants and both peppers are small scale.Wonder what the taste will be like.It's an early pepper so I should not have long to wait.
