We planted out ~100 seedlings of the Fish x Lipstick last week -- really looking forward to seeing -- will have updates later this summer!

The plants I had started last year died,I just bought a pepper today to start seeds again.
They take around 2 weeks to pop so it will be a while.

Good luck! All my peppers are out and getting drowned in rain and cool weather. I did notice a more general perkiness or come-around yesterday. I may lose 1 or 2, a tabasco in particular is looking dreary.

I tried to over winter hot pepper plants last fall but brought pestilence into the house that spread to the striped plants.

they took a week to pop on a heating mat and a porch that is 80 degrees during the day.
Put them outside today to start that process.

The same here, nice yellow peppers. The taste is good. Production is good as well. I grow organically and slugs/caterpillars/cutworms love them. Trying to get inside through stem side.
It was the first to develop baby peppers and the first attached by pests. Plant is stocky, not big. Huge leaves. Great for 5-7 gallon containers. Will grow again. Have to save seeds.
Barb, tanks for seeds.

I've been catching up with this thread, thanks all it's a great read.

I haven't been doing much growing the last few years, but hoping to do some this year. Back in January, I started some seed I saved a few years back from Enjoya fruit so I guess they are M2. I have 5 little plants growing on under lights and will perhaps start a few more seeds in a few weeks.

Anyone else still growing this generation, offspring or crosses?

I took a peek, it's a different type of striping, but they look pretty.

I got that in an order I paced with Heritage, planning on growing it out this year with a bunch of other peppers as well, if all goes to plan Which things never do go to the plan, but sometimes it is fun, LOL!

Any positive feedback about Bill’s Striped sweet pepper?
It is believed to be Giant Marconi sport.

Found Enjoya seeds on Ebay. Says they don't ship to the US. But then it says:
CANNOT SHIP TO FOLLOWING STATES IN USA - FLORIDA, GEORGIA, ALABAMA, TENNESSEE, AND MISSISSIPPI (or any other state with a zip code beginning with a 3)

Yes, it is a very good pepper, I trialed it a couple of years ago, and it seemed to be stable then, with stripes of varying intensity on most peppers.

I am really surprised to see seeds of Enjoya, as it was understood that the commercial plants producing striped fruit were only propagated by cuttings. Many of us grew out seeds from store fruit, and no one ever got anything but plain yellow bells from seeds. I am tempted to order some to see if this grower was successful in finding stripes, but I have my doubts. I hope they are not just selling seeds harvested from purchased fruit.
