A jewish friend of mine handed me a bag of peppers with a couple of these in recently, apparently grown by one of her relatives. They all seemed to be fairly standard varieties so, between the indian annuum appearance and fruity undertones (which might possibly resemble apple peel), I'm thinking that this might be the much loved Pusa Jwala.

That said, though, I'm no expert on indian and african annuum types so I can't say anything for sure and, for all I know, it might be from her family's home in israel. Does anyone have a more certain verdict on this pepper's variety?

This looks really similar to a pepper I grew this year just called "Jwala".

 

I'm not sure if it's a "Pusa Jwala", but it looks really close.

 

I still had a few over-ripe/under-ripe hanging on the plant (we haven't had a hard freeze yet).

 

Here's a picture:

Thanks, dude. I suspect that the Jwala is just a shorthand that some people and companies use but I'm not entirely sure.

Either way, though, the pepper looks damn near identical so it's good to havethe confirmation of what it is.

It could very well be pusa jwala from the description and appearance.
