What kind of peppers are these?

blackthorn462July 27, 2014

At the beginning of the growing season I bought about 60 gypsy pepper seedlings (they were supposed to be anyway) and planted in my garden. Most of whats growing does not resemble gypsys at all. It looks like out of the 60, maybe 2 of them are gypsy. I attached pictures of the other type of peppers growing. Can anyone tell me what they are exactly? thanks

2nd one looks like a Bell. The other 2, I'm not sure.. scotch bonnet maybe. How big are the pods?

Might try posting in the hot pepper forum. They might be able to I.D. them.

# 2 does look like a bell. #1 and 3 look like cheese peppers.

The first and third pics look like the Piros peppers I have growing right now.

Concur. Piros hybrid is sold as a bell pepper but has the classic cheese shape with multiple lobes and somewhat flat.

Very interesting!

Do they taste like a regular bell pepper?
