That reminds me of a thai plant that a buddy of mine brought seeds back from Tahiti.  I tried growing some last season.  The trunks do develop quickly, not sure if that is a common thing among thai plants.  Although I would bet the one in your picture has been around quite awhile.  My friend had said that the plant he grabbed he seeds from looked like a tree, it was huge and the trunk was thick.  I am going to attempt to grow it out again this year and maybe overwinter...

My mate over in Tasmania is drying some seeds off that plant for me now and i will grow them next season. His wife is Thai and got the seeds from her family's plant/s when they last visited them in Thailand some years ago.

Looks like Prik Chee Faa (pepper facing sky) skinnier and a bit long than Prik Ki Nu, the typical Thai bird chili


I do grow one similar myself, but mine grow in more of a cluster and a little bit smaller, i thought they called it the "praying to heaven chilli" due to its upright growing habit? In that pic they dont look to be growing in clusters.

Thanks

Look how thick that stem is, can tell that plant been growing a few years. 


He has them growing all year-round in a hot house down in Tasmania.
