Bell pepper?

So.....I bought this as a sweet orange bell pepper. It looks very much like a jalapeño to me.....???? Do bell peppers grow this shape? Or did I get a mismarked plant? I'm a new gardener, so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thx!

I've never grown them so I can't say for sure, but that sure doesn't look like any kind of bell pepper I've ever seen. Maybe the shape will change as it matures, but I doubt it. I just searched the Internet for Sweet Orange Bell Pepper and I couldn't find anything that looked like that. As to whether it's a jalapeno or not ... who knows. Lots of peppers have that color and shape. Let it grow and be surprised! Looking forward to an update later!

Thank you! Will definitely let it grow. I like jalapeños and peppers in general, so it will be interesting to see what it turns out to be!
