I bought a Ghost Pepper plant from my local market. Admittedly, it didn't look the healthiest, but it's now coming around after transplanting and fertilizer. I bought it about 2 weeks ago and the peppers looked the same as they do in this pic. It was the only one at the store that had orange peppers, the rest were red, so I figured it was not fully ripe yet. However, after two weeks I figured I'd see some color change. The peppers are also pretty wrinkled, which I thought might be an indicator. Is this possibly an orange ghost plant or am I just being impatient?

I don't think these will turn red.

if you search google images for ghost pepper you can find different color variations including orange ones. your pods are probably ripe now if you have seen no change in color.

I have one that ripens to orange, has smoother, thicker skin, and was in a bunch advertised as Red Bhuts at a box store.  Still just as hot, but doesn't seem to have the growing burn once bitten.  I am suspecting maybe a cross with a habanero of some sort. Who can tell?
