Mystery Hot Pepper! Please help!
I'm growing my own peppers from seed and noticed that I had a pepper plant that I overwintered indoors - grown from a seed that was in my sweet bell pepper mix packet.
I thought the plant was a sweet bell pepper. But, then it began to ripen, while the fruits were still red and they were only about 1.5 inches tall (from end/bottom of pepper to the base of the stem). When I plucked one today and bit into it, it tasted quite hot. I was shocked.
Can someone PLEASE tell me what kind of pepper this is? I have no idea of what it could be. Some of the peppers on there are a few inches tall, while others are 1.25 inches tall. I've included several pictures, the last of which shows some of the peppers still hanging off the plant (they're green-colored).
I'd appreciate any help you all can offer. Thanks so much.
