Need help ID this pepper

tivo532(9B)July 26, 2011

Hello there! I need help ID this pepper. My vietnamese friend gave me a pepper several years ago and was able to grew several plants from it. From previous years, the pods will start as green will turn black and then red when ripe.

Strange thing happen this year. It came out black! It looks like it's catching up with the season! LOL!

Do you know the exact name of this pepper? Thanks!

Vietnamese Black Dragon.

Similar to Goat Weed , Chile Negro De Arbol , Black Cobra ,Black Chile Verde and a few others I've grown.
Different ones have either a Brown Black color or a purple black color in the sun.

Black Cobra-Mexico

Unknown-pendant pods-bush like not tree like

Smokemaster, I think you nailed it. I guess the "Eclipse" is less bush like as that plant appears to be.

I have the Black Chile Verde and Black Cobra outside now.
Black Chile Verde is tree like,no lower branches.About 3-4ft. tall and growing.
I have a collection of Gray Fuzzies.
They are different than each other when put side by side.
Either pendant pods,pendant pods that start out upturned or pods that stay upturned.
Some pods are bigger or rounded tipped ,others are longer and skinnier ,thicker or thinner fleshed,fatter etc.
Plants range from smaller tight bushes to multiple stemmed tall bushes to tree like.
Peppermania is selling seeds this season for both the Chile Negro De Arbol and Goat Weed.

Vietnamese Black Dragon - Vietnam
Goat Weed - Venezuela
Chile Negro De Arbol , Black Cobra , Black Chile Verde - Mexico
Black Thai - Thailand (Prik Kee Nu chanda dal)
If I remember right there is also a Chinese version and a Brazilian one too.

Like any other pepper there are several different strains out there.
Some only have minor differences than the others.
Pods,how fuzzy they are etc.

Is this a good candidate for making pepper flakes? Like the one for Pizza.
