This pepper plant was given to me by a friend who got it in Terlingua, Texas. I would love to know what kind it is and could definitely use help. :) The plant is currently about 3 ft high, doing well, the peppers are currently around 2 inches. The plant just started producing peppers so I have not yet tried one; but my friend claims they are hot. Here are some pictures ...

Kinda hard to tell peppers apart, jalapenos and habaneros dont look alike-could be serrano tho- anaheims do well here too, ummm try looking at at their peppers to see if you spot one looks familiar- and has some awesome pepper varieties to add to the confusion, chuckl

Is it hot or sweet? If it is sweet then it might be Italian marconi.

She said hot, south Texans like em to start fires in their guts hot, seeds of change carries lists of peppers hotter than what we are accustomed to from way south of the border...

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
