Looks like an Annuum to me.
What I don't know.
But I think you are OK with ripening.
Most Annuums ripen pretty fast.
Compaired to Pubescens , Chinense and especially Baccatums.
Can't think of a small Pepperoncini right now - Italian pepper?
I assume low light is causing it to be long and lanky.
At first it looked Baccatum,but white buds and the Calyx say no way.
(lots of Bac. start out long and lanky.)
Calyx is wrong though as are the buds.
Looks a lot like several bird peppers I've grown.
Kinda big pods for some of the birds though.
A clue as to where the pods were from might help/place of origin.
At least we could check out Italian or pods from wherever.
Portugal is especially bad about pepper names.
They do a lot of trading etc. with different countries over the centuries and translated names to Potagese and things get mixed up over the years.
(like the Korean stuff I grow now-translates to Delicious pepper or whatever.They get a new name by whoever just because several other pepper names,translated were the same,but are different varieties).
Packed in wherever doesn't mean much at times,but A LOT of stuff sold in Potugal,Spain,Itally etc. are from several places originally due to past and present trade routes.
lots of different peppers are now Land Race over the years in places they were just exported to.
Became Land Race varieties etc.
Also,I see several varieties substituted when an importer can't get a supply from wherever FOR whatever.
Try growing out Pizza Parlor Crushed Red chili flake seeds.
You'll get several different plants.
Generic names are used for a lot of different chilis as far as dry pods and flakes goes.
Maybe post the company that sold the dry pods etc. if you still have the package label to see where the supplier gets the pods from.
I've found what stuff was over the years by finding out the main source of an importers dry pods.
It might be from anywhere Re Named for the market BUT after some searching it was from wherever else and is called something else in the place it was grown in.
An example is Zimbabwe Bird peppers. Tons of names but the source is the same,just called whatever by vendors that sell it wherever...
Maybe google the Vendor then see their souces.
Go from there.
You might or might not have a variety that is only that batch of peppers the co. sold.
Nope,I'm not addicted to Chiles.
Can't tell by what I sometimes go through to check out a few seeds that grew from commercial pods labeled as the same thing but grew different chili"s.
