This study examined some phenological, morphological and pomological features of different ornamental pepper (Capsicum sp.) species and lines under the conditions of Cukurova Region, Turkey. The field trials used a randomized complete block design with three replications. Different ornamental pepper species and lines varied depending on testing years, in terms of plant height (cm), the number of branches (number/plant), the number of fruits (number/plant), the weight of fresh fruit (g plant-1), the yield of fresh fruit (kg ha-1) and the breadth and length of fruit. Fresh yields of different ornamental pepper species and lines varied between 9412 -24418 kg ha-1 in the testing years. The highest fresh yield was observed from line C. frutescens 26 (24418 kg ha-1). It was determined that the fresh yield from the first harvest was higher than the others.
