I'm still thinking they are serranos and not the birds eye peppers.

The ones in my garden that I thought were Bird's Eye grow UP. Pointy end up.

Dan, I just remembered I have serranos in the yard. The leaves on your plant don't look like serrano leaves. They look like this: http://gstuff.co.nz/shop/garden/images/Hot%20passion2.JPG

Oops, I mean Ray!

The leaves in Almas link are much larger than the ones on the chili I grew. Mine looked just like what I see in your picture Ray. Chili's were about 3/4" long and grew downward. Plant got to be about 18" tall although it was in a 7 gallon container and that might have prevented it from growing to it's normal size. I'll start some of the seeds I saved and we can compare again later this summer.

I found a pic. It's not a close up so it's a little hard to compare.

Sorry, I'm still not buying serranos. The leaves are too small and clustered differently and the peppers are too small, too. Ray, can you post a pic of the whole plant?

I went back and checked my past recording and sorry Alma.
Its a Serrano.

Dan - if that's the one you told us about the pain you suffered I'll pass.
Really appreciate the offer but no thanks.

That's the one!

Here is a pic of the bird's eye peppers I saved for seed. These are a little bigger than what most of them were. They look a lot like the ones in your pick above.

Looking very good Ray. All of my peppers are just getting going.....I think they were waiting for the heat to kick in.
