This plant was set a couple of months from a seed in a packet of chilis. It was the only one that grew out of the 6 I set. The question is - is it a chili plant ? Or something else altogether ?




It's a weed i'm afraid...although a very happy and well cared for weed. Probably a Polygonum but a Chilli it ain't

Did you have them in a propagator Hank?
my peppers all germinated but are much slower to grow than tomatoes, they are in bud while the peppers are only around 6'' high

P. I have only 3 peppers this year. I - 6 inches and 2 smaller. Very slow.
B. Dammit, I've looked after it, talked to it, and it's a weed. If you're certain, it's being chopped up and discarded ttomorrow.
