baccatum Different baccatum

I have not seen a baccatum with purple leaves or variegated foliage. There is one that is said to have purple flowers http://chilipepperseeds.tictail.com/product/purple-flower-baccatum and some that are multicolor (pods changing color as they ripen) such as the Bishop's Crown multicolor http://www.fordsfieryfoodsandplants.com/Bishops-crown-Multi-colored?search=bishops  and the Barra do Ribeiro https://www.whitehotpeppers.com/collections/capsicum-baccatum/products/barra-do-ribeiro. 
 
Personally, I am a big fan of the Brazilian Starfish. It loads up with really unusual-looking pods that make the plant stand out in the garden. And the pods are sweet and delicious, too!

Might i humbly suggest selecting for delicious pods or robust plants or high yields, instead of cute foliage?
 
While that's a good suggestion, I feel like ornamentals have value too. For example, I wouldn't top a fountain full of plants with a reaper plant, but something like a black pearl or aji omnicolor may fit
 
I want the plants and the peppers to look different then the normal but if the peppers don't taste great I have no use for them. I also want a varigated super hot!

The ones I got going this year have purple pods too. Looks to strongly take after the maui purple
Hey buddy I think "we" came to the conclusion that the Maui purple was a C.annuum L.  I picked out 6 plants this year with all different shades of purple, no pods yet but looking forward to them. Cheers

What was the Chinese in the cross that you ended up with purple flowers?
 
The cross is Aji Ahuachapan x RedGum tiger
 
I'm growing the Purple Flower Baccatum from Mojo this year. These flowers are still closed, but you can see a faint purple tint on the closed petals.

Not as purple as on his site...at least not yet. But they're different! I'll update when they open.

I received free seeds for Pink Tiger X Mutant and am currently growing it. Had no idea what to expect... I must say it's really ornamental. The foliage at least. similar to black pearl I suppose, but i'm positive it will taste much better.
 
The only baccatum with ornamental value that comes to mind is the Omnicolor. Of course that's strictly the fruit. I see more ornamental varieties (that also taste good) in Chinense.
 
Or Pubescens! Those are damn pretty plants. Plus you probably won't get any fruit so it will only be an ornamental! *flips table over*
