Planted a few things mid summer last year, this one i believe could be a chilli plant or maybe a pepper plant, lost most of the ones i planted but these ones were striving rather than thriving, i repotted them a couple of days ago and they seem to have really taken off as u can see by the pictures, can anyone pleae identify they are most definately some sort of veg or fruit!

To my eye it does looks like a chilli or a pepper plant alright. Can't tell which though. As it is from last summer it's worth keeping indoors, warm with good light, until May. It might produce early and well for you as it is so well established.

this looks like a pepper alright but if it grew from a seed from last years crop then it may not be worth keeping as it is probably from an F1 hybrid. It will produce a crop but of doubtful quality

I think it is an original plant that just didn't perform last year and has essentially been overwintered. Not one grown from a collected seed of last year's plant?

They can sell F1 but would be less likely than the large seed companies. It would have said on the packet. If this is from your store bought seed packet then it will produce fruit regardless of whether it is F1 or not. The thing about F1 is that if you save a seed from a pepper that grew from an F1 hybrid, then the next gereration plant will not come true ie. the fruit/veg will not be like it's parent. But you will be fine with these plants. Keep them indoors warm and in good light until the temps are high and steady is all.

I thought you bought a packet of seeds, not a packet of peppers Smile
The only way to know is to care for it and see what happens. If you really want to grow a plant and have good fruit garaunteed then buy a packet of seeds.

Definitely a pepper; whether hot or not, you won't know until you get the fruit! Definitely mind it- the worst that can happen is that you don't like the peppers, and it goes on the compost heap.

I'd start spraying weekly with seaweed feed (If you can't make your own, buy Maxicrop) and when it starts flowering, pollinate with a fine paintbrush. As the posters above said, try to keep it warm (20 degrees celcius) using cloches, fleece, or a heated house.

build some soil up around the stem it will produce strong roots at the surface of the soil be careful not to overwater depending on type you may or may not need to pollinate ..
do not smoke and then touch plants as you can infect with a tobacco virus

i always use tomato food, water from the top.
depending on variety they may pollinate themselves or use the fine paintbrush when flowers are wide open as a failsafe
