My unidentified rejected produce.

So after a few years of trying to grow peppers here in South Africa i quit at the start of this year as I was told i'ts not recommended I eat them anymore because I have a massive hernia...
 
So I put all my plants from last year (none of them produced anything except the Chocolate Bhut Jolokia) under a shade net and rejected them. Occasionally i'd remember to go water them and i'd see another dead plant.
 
We started winter in June so I figured they'd probably all die out but just before winter started I noticed some peppers were popping up. Today I picked only the good peppers from the plants and chucked the rotting, dry dead peppers away.
 
I went back to my online order to cross reference what peppers came up and i'm extremely confused...
 
Do any of the peppers in the pic seem familiar? The twisted yellow pepper has a decent kick and extremely fruity flavour with no bitterness but I can't find anything on my order that looks like it. Closest I find is Peach Bhut SS.
 
I'm going to test the other peppers tomorrow but my doc will probably have a fit if he finds out i'm tasting peppers :)

Another strange thing I noticed (possible cross-pollination?) is that the top 3 right peppers were growing on the same plant that produced the red peppers on the left. They kinda look more like the red peppers at the bottom which is a different plant.
 
I'm guessing top mid yellow peppers are Scotch Bonnet.
 
Solitary bottom one looks a bit like my Caramel Bhuts. Chocolate maybe?
Top right looks Fatalii-like but even more twisted. Kind of like a Peach Wasp but the wrong colour.

And no, cross pollination wouldn't change the peppers, only the next generation plant and, by extension, the ones it grew. It would not explain 2 types on one plant.

Ye the bottom is chocolate Bhut as that's produced for 2 years,
 
I agree the yellow looks fatalii but I never ordered yellow... I ordered white.
 
You going to get surgery for your hernia?  Maybe after they slap a fix-a-flat in your gut and you heal, the doctor will let you start eating the hot stuff again?

I hear that.  I'm about to burn every ounce of my personal leave next month on surgery/recovery of a different sort, but my job is working with me through temp disability and then work from home, etc.  Best of luck.  :)
 
Hi,
Good to see a fellow South African getting active again.
Firstly , tell the doc to relax , any hernia will do better with all fruits and vegetables , because it helps with gastric emptying and bowl movement. hernias are made worse by distended bowl and abdomen created by all carbohydrates.
 
If the top two yellow ones are at 12 o'clock;
4 o'clock looks like Trinidad moruga scorpions and 6 o'clock looks like a choc fatalii
