I got seeds 3 years ago sent to me but I cannot find any cultivar that match them.

Seedlings are albino (that die), green, or yellowish. Any leaf color produces seed saved still produces mixed color seedlings. Color stays the same in true leaves, only baby leaf color is not true, meaning green coetyldon can grow yellow true leaves. Flowers are yellow and fruit red and round. Very flavorful and juicy.

lutescent 'honor bright' is similar in that it has yellow leaves, but these start out green and develop yellow and look sickly. Mine stay the same and don't look sickly at all. Fruit is nearly identical.

I don't know what I have but they are special and come true from seed and I can't find an official cultivar.
