Hi there, this plant is grow from seeds I purchased online. It was sold as Naga Viper seeds, however as the first pod shows up, it just doesn't quite look like it. Any idea what kind of pepper is this? I have attached photos of the fist pod, flower and plant itself. Thank you.
Can anyone help me to ID my pepper plant?

+1 on naga viper. If its the first pods the plant is throwing then sometimes the pheno can look a little different. Once the plant matures they may start looking a little more like what you're expecting.

Dunno Willard, I'd ask OP for more pix of fruit per node? I only see one in all pix supplied.... If you're going by the flower I agree, looks C. chinense!

I was going by the flower.
In the flower foto, it looks like there are two fruits on the same node.

Hi Guys, So it has been 1 week and 5 days since I first posted here asking for help from fellow forum members. Now the fruit does look even more like a Naga Viper, Thank you everyone who helped out here. Well, the seed company wasn't being too honest with me. The three kinds of chili pepper seeds I purchased from them, after 3-4 months of growing, only to see the 'Carolina reaper' turned out to be some kind of Thai chili, 'Bhut jolokia' growed up to be some kind of Jalapeno/Serrano Chili. Well at least I have got the Naga Viper right.
Big Thanks to everyone here!

Well, maybe. I have seen Naga Viper pods that looked like Nagas and others that looked like Butch T Scorpions, so I am not too sure. I have a Purple Naga Viper plant with three different phenotypes of pods on it right now. Consistency just doesn't seem to be a hallmark of this variety. Bottom line, If your Reapers were Thais and your Bhuts were Jalapenos, I would be a bit suspicious of these as well since the seed vendor does not appear to be a trustworthy source, and the Naga Viper is a more rare variety than Reapers and Bhuts.
The second fotos look more like an annuum.
It appears to have a chinense calyx, from what I can tell.
