What variety are trying to grow? There are over 3000 varieties in this species ranging from bells to Serranos. Mini-bells are sweet peppers normally used fresh. Some of the hot peppers are best dried. All are edible. Standard pepper culture applies.

Looks hot. The peppers that I know that resemble the photo are varieties like Bishops Crown ( Capsicum baccatum), Mushroom, Bazuka,( Capsicum Chinense). The only Capsicum annum that I am aware of is Balloon. Center and seeds are hot, but the flesh is mild and sweet. This one does sort of look like a bell pepper with wings. http://www.totallytomato.com/dp.asp?pID=03007&c=36&p=Balloon...

What an interesting pepper. I've never seen that one. Thanks for showing the pic of the seed packet Munozk.
