Unknown pepper plant identification

greenmonster182(7)September 3, 2013

I bought a couple of pepper plants in early June and one of them they did not identify. they said they got the seeds from Mexico and someone told me he bought one last year and it was a small pepper but VERY hot. Now the plant is about 5 ft 10 in and produced a lot of flowers about 5 days ago. The flowers were white and faced downwards. Now there a few small green peppers forming and I'm wondering what they are. I'm thinking either chili pepper or Tabasco pepper but I am a novice so I am open to any guesses. Please tell me what you think this mystery pepper is. :)

I don't think it is jalapeno, it is to big and doesn't match up with my other jalapeno plant

Are all of the peppers growing vertically? "Bird Peppers" grow like that

you might be on to something, all the peppers are growing up and bird pepper plants get up to 2 meters

There are way too many varieties to hazard a guess, but the upright habit of the fruit is definitely an important characteristic. Chances are it will be something plenty hot though.

Wait until they get to size and ripen, it will be easier to ID then.

It doesn't look like a birds eye pepper. It will be easier to tell once the peppers get a little bigger.
