Can anyone help me in identifying this chilli plant. I was sold them as Padron Chilli's, however I now doubt that, due to shape, size and heat.They are all fairly hot. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
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.
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.
You're welcome, all part of the fun with chillies
I've had crossed seeds from Franchi before. Pity, because they have a decent range.
Could I have cross pollinated the plant by self pollinated with a brush ? or would it have been at source ?
No, the cross pollination would have happened in the previous generation. Nothing you've done
When you said can anyone name this chilli, I thought you wanted suggestions, like Charlie the Chilli, or maybe Cheryl the chilli?
I'll get me coat
