This experiment was set out to evaluate some landrace and exotic collections of hot pepper accessions in the open field and greenhouse environments. Vegetative, reproductive, fruit and yield quality traits were examined among the genotypes to ascertain best performers for production and breeding purposes. Under both environmental conditions, the experimental design used was randomized complete block design (RCBD). Replication was done thrice. There were variations observed for almost all traits studied in relation to genotype, environment and genotype by environment interactions. Generally, genotypes showed almost complete variability in traits under the two different environments. However, performances of traits were better under greenhouse than the open field conditions. For reproductive, fruit, and yield quality traits, the genotypes ICPN16#7, GR 202, Z-607 and Vulcano showed superior and stable performances under both environments and therefore could be used for open field and green house production as well as breeding programs.
