I wanted to ID this one

it is a dark brown that is very wrinkly. Is it Jamaican Chocolate Brown? What does it look like?

Seeds were from peppers bought from ethic markets.

I have 2 Manzano (C. pubescens) that are starting to produce peppers. Do they take a long time to ripen?

Also I started some Fatalii and Wiri Wiri that I will start indoors.

I have about 50 peppers from 2 Chinense plants.

I have one plant that I bought as a Jalapeno plug, but the peppers are a lot smaller than reg jalapenos

Regarding your ID question, it could be a Jamaican Chocolate Brown. It could also be Chocolate Habanero, Chocolate Scotch Bonnet or a 7 Pot Douglah. Hard to say from the picture.

If you don't die or really really really want to die after tasting it, it's not a Douglah ;-)

For reference, here's a shot of a Chocolate Scotch Bonnet I grew this year.

Thanks Ottawapepper!

I do not think it is a scotch bonnet as it does not have that mushroom / bonnet shape. It is similar to mine, so I guess it is a Jamaican Chocolate brown. Also has thick walls and I have seen SB that have thinner walls.

Jamaican guy at Chile FIesta at Brooklyn Botanic Garden gave me a yellow Jamaican Scotch bonnet. It had the real squat shape. I used it for seeds. He said Scotch Bonnets are less hot than Caribbean Reds and have more flavor. He said Caribbean Reds are just HOT! I also got some Fatalii for seeds. They feel less hot than my reds and browns.

Hey Ottawa, what do you do, do you armor all those peppers before you photo them?

stefpix, I have had pods that were squat in shape, just not the one ripe enough when I too the photo.

Bruce, yes, the pods do look a bit shiny and plastic ;-) I use a light box/tent to shoot pod photos. It has to do with the diffused light and the color balance my camera defaults to (I'm a lazy shooter most of the time so I don't adjust it).
