    Hope they first I read that as cooked in a dish versus got warm.

    it would be terrific if you could get a stripey one.

      Lol, yes reading it back it does sound that way! I don't think there will be any stripy ones, but something else interesting might turn up though it is a remote chance.

        I planted 10 Enjoya seeds in February 2017 in my greenhouse, from a beautiful specimen fruit I purchased at Whole Foods here in central Virginia in the fall of 2016, and properly saved the seeds. Took about 3 weeks until 4 of the seeds germinated! No other germinations (and I gave up on addition germinations July 1st, 2017). The four that popped up were the slowest sweet pepper plants I have ever started, but I moved them out about June 20th after hardening off. One died but the other 3 hung in there, and by August 1st they were about 14 to 16 inches tall and I noticed each plant had 2 or 3 tiny infant peppers. By the 3rd weekend (HOT, zone 7a) in August the plants maxed out at 18 - 19 inches tall, and the little peppers were still green and the three largest were about the size of a golf ball. None eventually achieved the size of a baseball and by mid-Sept all had 2 or 3 shades of orange splotching - random and appeared relative to the amount of direct sunlight received. Anyway, this past year was very disappointing compared to the unique (and sweet, juicy, tasty) fruit I purchased. I saved about 20 seeds, none of my fruit had many seeds, and I will try again this year. In fact, I will sow the seeds about 1/20/2018 this year. In final, my plants received a moderate amount of blue label Neptune’s Harvest via a foliage spray starting 2 weeks after transplant and every three weeks thereafter. Well, there's some info - maybe it will help someone. I remain open to any suggestions. Good luck to all that try this one themselves!

          Well you have more favourable climate than we have Organic and still it wasn't easy and disappointing. These are a hard nut to crack. Clearly a hybrid. Although good that you saw more than one colour. Good luck for this year. I am not familiar with Neptun's Harvest, but it sounds like you took very good care of them. Maybe you get a gem in this generation. Let's hope so.
