plant Identifying Ornamental Pepper Plant

Hello everyone, I'm new here, and also new to the hobby of growing peppers. Back in September a friend of mine gave me some ornamental peppers seeds, but we are unfamiliar which kind one of the peppers are. I have birdseye baby chilli, and these other ones. The other one are red, about 1"-1 1/2" inches in length. I don't have any ripe ones, only the dried up ones to show for image.

I started growing two of these mystery peppers back in November and they're growing strong and beautiful. Today they bloomed two beautiful white flowers with strange purple outlines on the pedals. I tried looking them up online but couldn't find anything on them by image. I was hoping someone here might be able to identify them or take a stab at it. Otherwise, I'll have to just wait till they flower and grow peppers in the summer months.

Bit early to say what they are. Grow the pepper and post a photo when it’s fully grown and ripe.
So I do have some new pictures, one single pepper is trying to grow currently on one of the plants, and is purple in the early stages so far. I know it'll be red once it fully grows, since the dried up ones where I got the seeds were red. These are the plants as of today, 4/18. It's taking off and growing significantly faster now, I anticipate more peppers in the coming month(s).
