Default Well this is strange...

My largest and most productive Trinidad Scorpion Butch T plant has already given me a ton of bright red pointy tailed screamers. Now it's putting out a second flush of peppers that don't look anything like they are supposed to look. Now they are ripening orange (like a Habanero) and have lost their tails. I've never seen this happen before, has anyone else?

Oh, they haven't lost a bit of their bite though.

The plant knew you were tired of the peppers so it changed into new peppers.

By the way happy birthday.

Hope you enjoyed it.

That is odd, never seen it happen myself, good thing they still have their bite though.

Well, some of the folks over at THP have seen this before. Apparently the colder weather triggers it and it only seems to affect the superhots. Everything will be fine come Spring (I'm overwintering).

The superhots must be the genetically shakiest peppers out there, something in the genes triggered by the weather??

Bill,

I have seen something similar happening with my Trinidad Scorpion and Scotch Bonnet Red peppers - some weird shape change on the same plants. At the beginning, I even thought I did not get correct Scotch Bonnets!

Trinidad Scorpions started out without tails, and later in the season they produced typical shapes with 'tails'. Strange, isn't it?
