Hi all, my wife picked up this pepper plant from our local asda supermarket in the clearance section (62p).Unfortunately it came with no labels or information. Any help in trying to identify it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

From here  it has  the appearance of a Manzano Pepper..Capsicum pubescens,one distinguishing

characteristic  is it's  black seeds,is thick walled.Native to Bolivia &Peru...nice for sauce.

Along with The species name, pubescens, means hairy, which refers to the hairy leaves of this pepper.

 

.I'm curious about the middle pic. With the two pods so close together if they're from the same node it would indicate C. chinense.

Well, single fruit per node indicates C. annuum.

Thanks for the info.

 

So the last thing is "What is it?" When you harvest pods a pic of a pod off the plant  with a quarter for scale and one pic each of the pod split in half showing both half's and both sides, again with the quarter for scale.

Use this (Click on it.)>Peach Pod   as a model but pic of whole pod should be halved.... Don't forget the quarter!
