If you are asking about the Charleston Hot Pepper, they were started around February 1st and set outside around the middle of April.

That is impressive. I start my hot chiles in January and set them out in late April and some plants have fruit but none are ripe. I suspect it is the difference in the temperature that is the reason. We have cool springs and early summers. I normally do not get ripe fruit until late August.

Yes, I suspect our difference in weather is a big factor in ripening and maturity. It is unusual for this area of N.C. to drop below 90 degrees for late June and July.

Yes, we rarely get those temps and our evening are usually in the mid sixties, even on the hottest days.

My Habanada plants are all loaded with peppers. They need to hurry up and turn orange!

Default Habanero

Here's my habaneros. The 1st picture is of plants from seedlings that I bought at a local plant farm. The 2nd picture is of plants that I grew from seed saved from last year...from Carolina Reaper Peppers. Hmmm...any ideas?

Thanks, Worth. Any thoughts on why my grown-from-seed Carolina Reaper plants are producing what look to be Habaneros...?

I am sorry to say I dont know enough about Carolina reaper to even have an educated opinion.
But I will try.
Since it is a cross between the Ghost pepper AKA Bhut jolokia and a red habanero it is just genes peeking their heads out.
I personally have grown two distinct types of ghost pepper.
One longer and the other shorter with the tail on the end.

Reapers are always a crap shoot. Too many people sell bad seeds because of the name and popularity. Try a different seed source next year. If you're going for really hot peppers plant some 7 Pot Primo's or Butch T Moruga scorpions, You won't know they're not reapers and just as hot.

I can see that. The Reapers were more of an infatuation, anyway...I was just curious as to what happened. I grow Ghost, Habanero, and Fatalli also. They are all plenty hot enough...and they are all pretty peppers, unlike most of the mutant "superhots", which, to me, are just plain ugly peppers.... I appreciate y'alls responses!
