This is a nice looking, peach/flesh-colored pepper from Brazil. The traditional color on these is red. They are very similar to Biquinho peppers. The flavor is tangy with some chinense/hab overtones. Heat level on the ones I grew is between cayenne and thai.
This is a Peruvian heirloom Capsicum baccatum pepper.

This pepper has a fruity tangy, typical baccatum flavor, with low/medium heat. It grows kind of vine-like, might do well in a hanging pot, otherwise needs a lot of support to stay upright. It has good ornamental potential as the pods are very beautiful going through multiple color phases, from cream purple to sparkling red.
This is a three-way pepper cross from Justin White of White Hot Peppers. The strain I grew was f2, so it is still pretty unstable. The plant has dark foliage, pods typically ripen to orange.

This plant has great ornamental value. The leaves are dark, and pods go through multiple ripening color phases. They typically ripen to orange/red, but I had one plant that ripened to gold. The heat varied between the two plants I grew. The one I tasted in the video had heat a little lower than a regular ghost, the flavor was not bad.
This is a sweet spot size for one large plant or a few smaller ones. It is much improved over the standard 24″ x 24″ x 48″ tents, offering a few inches of width on each side, and over a foot extra height. This extra head room allows for taller plants, and grow light and ventilation ducting.
In this one, I’m using the Mars Hydro SP150 grow light to grow some Chocolate Rocotos.

It is similar to the Pro series, P1500 grow light they came out with, in early 2020 but has upgraded Samsung LM301B diodes and an HLG series Meanwell driver.

This pepper was very hot, more than expected. They typically are supposed to have a distinct fruitiness, but the one I grew was more floral, with much higher than habanero level heat. I think it would be great for hot sauces or powders.
