Default Ornamental peppers

Feast for the eyes, these are without a doubt the prettiest thing in all the gardens this time of year.
Think these are numex twilight, but an outside chance they are Bolivian rainbow.
Can't recall...

They might, they are pretty hot, but unremarkable flavor wise...

Not really. IMO they taste kinda soapy. But not everyone tastes that. Some like the taste.

Nice looking plant, 'tode. One of the Twilights I started for a friend is going bonkers. People come from the street to ask what it is. But for some reason the pods are all less than 3/4" long instead of the 1.5-1.8" that I've grown before. Go figure.

I can fix that.
two parts Vinegar one part water sugar and cloves.
Boil strain cloves out and mix with blended peppers.
Strain.
Tastes like hot sweet gherkins

I ate one one time whole while out in the blazing hot sun I thought I was going to die.

I plan on growing Filus Blue peppers this spring. For test purposes in germination, I have 3 coming up as I type. Maybe somehow I can keep them alive through the winter until placing them out doors in the spring.
