Hello all,

 

I had gotten seeds for this plant from a local Korean BBQ joint I visited.  It was late in the season and the plant had a bunch of dried red pendant pods on it.  I took a pod thinking it was a Super Chile.  It had that look and feel to me.  Anyways, I germinated a seed and got a plant out of it.  Not a super chile.  This plant is an annuum, pods start out light green, then go to purple, then mature to red.  Pods grow up.  Any thoughts on what it might be?

Some sort of ornamental?  How does a red pod taste?

Super Chiles will tan like that. I have a few on the plant now with some light purple splotches. They did it last year.

I think that is it.  I have looked at the pics at Reimer's and it looks dead on accurate.  Thanks for that!

Puriras are surprisingly picante as you will find.
