Great finds and I`m very jealous you got to visit Kerala!!!
Variety #3 is definitely a C.frutescens. There is a widely used C.frutescens in and around Kerala and I`m growing it this year from pods taken from a market there.
Variety #1 looks to me like a C.annuum. The calyx and flower seem to me to fall within C.annuum, but I am not 100% certain.
Variety #2 is very interesting indeed. I`m temped to say C.frutescens because of the calyx, but it may be another annuum. I`m really not sure at all about this one.
Thank you! It was very beautiful and the people there were all so friendly!
Yes, I agree with #3 it looks exactly like the one on your post!
Thank you for the help, should help point me in the right direction! :]
