Joke.

It looks like a mutation similar to the one(s) that cause striping in tomatoes.

Since the leaves on the plants look normal, I would guess it is not some kind of chimera that must be vegetatively propogated.

I bet it is heritable.

Have you tried cutting peppers in half and putting ice cream inside?

It's got to be a hybrid, right? I just can't see it being open pollinated.

I just might do that if they dont like it after that then i suppose there is no hope for them. Its funny because my daughter loves the salsa i make with Carolina Reaper peppers cut into it but wont touch a bell pepper. Im still working on my son to like peppers as well as tomatoes. Its sad because hes my right hand man in the garden but wont eat the maters.

Sprouts Farmers Market grocery store chain carries these peppers. At least the ones in Northern CA do.

Good info, Andrey. Thanks.

The peppers are all over the US. First seen here in Texas, then in several places in New England & NE, then SF area?, then PNW, etc.


Don't believe anyone that offers seeds unless they say that they got them from a bought pepper. The propagators certainly won't be offering seeds. So no independent info on whether they grow true from seed, but expect that they will.

It might be a hybrid, but I don't assume so. Green Zebra isn't a hybrid.

If this pepper was discovered in a glasshouse 2 yrs ago, it is unlikely that it is a hybrid, as 2 years would not be enough time to create 2 true-breeding parental lines that were striped.

This assumes that, like in tomatoes, the striping is recessive. If the striping is dominant, Enjoya (the stripey pepper) could be a hybrid.

My bet is that it is PVPd and/or they have tried to patent it.

I too agree that it probably isn't a hybrid. Thank you for the links you posted earlier in this thread Andrey.

That's great if it's OP. Although if so I think it was an unwise business decision for them not to wait to make a hybrid. Even if they got a pvp, Intellectual Property law is about money. The idea is that someone else is making money by stealing your brand. The punishment is almost always 3x profit. For people like us, who just give each other seeds, the worst that could happen is a judge's order to stop doing so, but no one is going to spend the money to get that order; it's not worth it.
