These plants are both Peach Bhut WM x Jonah. The purple plant is the only one out of the whole bag that came out different. They're from WHP, so I know it's a reputable place. Either this is a surprise from the hybrid or a rogue seed of another variety. Either way, I'm extremely excited to see how it turns out! The second the purple guy popped out of the seed it was already purple tinted. The flowers have purple streaks and I'm currently waiting to see what the peppers look like...the first one is juuuuust starting to grow and I'm hoping it doesn't fall off like so many of my other plants are doing. They're all getting way too much rain and I can't do anything about it. 

None of my family cares about my purple pet, but I figured maybe you guys would understand my excitement. I'm debating about trying to keep a couple flowers isolated...if that's even possible...to save seeds without them being pollinated by my other plants. Also, ignore the spoon...tiny person lives here.

Your purple plant looks really cool.  The most likely explanation is that a Peach Bhut WM x Jonah flower crossed with an anthocyanin producing variety and you got seeds from that pod - so ((Peach Bhut WM x Jonah) x ???). Anthocyanin is dominant (both A and MoA) so it won't "hide" in a hybrid line.  Will be super cool to see what the pods on that guy look like and I hope you post pics.

 

And yeah, WHP is very reputable, but many of it's seeds are sold as "open pollinated," so such hybrids do occur. That's not necessary bad news though.  :)

I don't mind what I get out of these plants, I've never grown or eaten (blasphemy I know) hot peppers. I grew them for fun and a surprise is extra fun for me!
That makes sense about the crossing that you mentioned. I knew they weren't isolated plants by any means, I just never considered that they could be this different. I will definitely post pics of the peppers off the plant as they grow and ripen though!

No judgments, just sincere advice: eat some chiles! They're great!!!

You are entering the buttocks with the spicy hand of Chinese pepper? And pleasure from this low pepper? I am not sure but the scorpion pepper musk when raw, is the sexual experience. This is granted, and evident in the taste, and the woman jealous.
