In that case, I'd take a guess that your chilli might be an 'Etna' variety?

Another possibility is a hybrid, due to accidental cross-pollination. Chillies cross-pollinate quite easily, so it's not unusual, although less common when the seed is from a reputable source that has taken steps to avoid it. Your seeds could even have been collected from a parent Padron pod, that had been cross-pollinated with an Etna or something else.

Where did you get it from?

Maybe there was a mix up and if you know what else they sell, that might narrow it down.

My lovely plums!

Nice plums, Steve.

Have you got a decent cucumber or courgette to show off too?

Hot Pepper ID - Habanero?

Spike, agreed they don't look like Bhuts, so getting some 'wrong' seed is a possibility.

Spike, have you eaten one yet?

Habs have quite a distinctive taste and heat.

What was the source of your Orange Habanero seeds, could these plants have come from those seeds or not?

Similar to Steve and Baz, mine are just starting to open or in the early stages of flowering.

Similar experiences to you, Mr BB, what varieties have you tried?

I get plants to a certain size, lower leaves seem to die and drop off, and plant fails to thrive. I did have a small number of small pods last year with 'Cajun Delight', but frustrating not to be able to get the plants bigger and more productive.

This year I've got a couple of 'Red Burgundy' growing, and one of the plants is a foot tall and small pods are forming, but same problem with lower leaf drop.

Already got my seeds for next year, 'Clemsons Spineless', so I haven't given up yet.
