More hot peppers to id

Posted by botanicat z7 NW GA (My Page) on

All three of these peppers are from the same plant. I have the leaves to help identify if possible too. These are really hot with a lingering heat. Tastes good, but cannot figure out what it is for the life of me.

Thanks for any help.

A picture of the plant can be helpful.
Otherwise I just call them common CHILI pepper. Could be tobassco, japonese, pequit. etc.

Seysonn.....here is the plant for the above peppers. I originally posted with my mother in laws account. In the pot, the plant is about 4 feet tall and as seen in the first shot some of the peppers come to a more blunt end with a dimple in the end of the pepper.

Thanks for any help.

Looks like Thai and Tabasco (and one Birds Eye) varieties I've grown.

Based on your pictures, I'm sure a c. frutescens variety.

That is the thing though, ottawapepper, all three peppers in the picture are from the same plant. They are all the same....just can't figure out what that same is.

The dimpling/blunting in the end is a malformation. I agree... a thai or pequin variety. I've never grown tobasco,

captmotor,

Some pod variation, even on the same plant, is fairly common.
