Fresh Pointy pepper seeds

Earlier this month, we had some 'pointy peppers' from Aldi.
I planted some seeds on the 15 March and they are through surprisingly quickly, compared to their dried and named counterparts.

It will be interesting experiment to see what kind of fruits we get from unknown parentage.

I hope the results are edible and not a waste of time, space and materials.

    If they were Palermo ( long and pointy ), they do come true and generally germinate within a week in a heated propagator.  I've been doing this for the last 3 years or so and altho last year was a bit disappointing re full ripening, the green ones are perfectly edible fresh  and can also be successfully frozen for later use in the likes of tomato sauce, etc.

    I prefer fresh seeds,  straight from the pointy fruit to the flower pot,  never had a propagator, never had one not germinate and they come true as Philippa says. 
    Having said that,  Philippa gave me seeds this year that she had left from last year, all germinated,  must be one of the easiest things to grow.
