Yeah, too obscure for me, don't think I've seen South Park in 10 years...

It was the then-current "funniest joke in the world". You ask a guy if he likes fishdicks, and no one will notice the supposed mispronunciation, setting up the joke. South Park is still on and still hilarious, and ever once in a while I have to go to the web site to catch up.

Anyway, back to our show ... "Fishstick" you say?

My enjoya peppers were sowed much later than others here. Two plants that were transplanted into a 5 G and 3 G rootpouch are really pumping out peppers. Pepper sizes are now 2-3" and plant still has lots of flowers. Some of the peppers are growing upright; I'm sure a function of being squeeze in. These are nice small plants; probably just over 1'.

Both plants are super healthy. I'm going to transplant some of the other Enjoya that were left in the 4" cups.

If the weather stays warm, I think the peppers would be mature within a month.

No stripes yet but I wouldn't expect stripes until there is a change of color.

I will be on the lookout for a change. Really nice weather for tomatoes/peppers. High of 80 lows in the mid 60s.

Hm, with Fish, you can see stripes better when they're green, it's actually harder to see stripes once they're red.

It is a distinctly different striping phenotype.

Some of the larger fruit on my plants seem to have stopped growing, so now I just have to wait for them to ripen.

Any pics or updates yet? Wondered if any stripes have started showing or are you folks growing them still waiting on color changes.

On variegated tomatoes, they need a wide temp change to get their variegation "activated..." maybe this would trigger the striped coloration on peppers? Maybe just an overnight below 50-55F? Any of the growers able to try that?

I was thinking of something like that earlier today. It had to do with germination of pepper plants, but I can see it applying to variegation. An idea would be if you could grow these peppers outside during the warm/hot day and then bringing them in at night to a cold garage/basement/air conditioning?

The other thought is that it is an F2.

My thought is that they may be vegetative clones that are used to produce the variegated peppers.

Then again, there are striped tomatoes, and so it could be a stable (genetically transmissable) trait.

And you guys are also right, it might be environmentally enhanced, and that could be the trade secret.

The documentation (patents, etc.) seems to indicate the plants are produced via tissue culture. I'm hoping the trait is at least partially heritable.

The first of my peppers have started to develop some yellow color, so hopefully soon I'll know if any of my plants show stripes. One of the plants has produced a fruit that has a very dark anthocyanin shoulder, so there does seem to be some genetic diversity within the plant.
