    I don't know the specific name, but I buy them as 'ornamental peppers' and use them in the landscape between seasons....like now. The also come in yellow, orange and red. I have always understood they were edible and told clients they could eat them. Nobody died that I know of.

    I'm no pepper expert so it is just a guess. Maybe Hank would be able to tell us for sure.

    Calin, what is the weather like where you live, temperature ranges for the summer and winter, maybe rainfall amount. That way we would know what kind of seeds might do there.

    hi guys. am not sure it's that one. my peppers tend to grow upright. is it because they didn't grow too big and therefore not heavy enough to hang?
    well... was just thinking about it.

    well... in the summer it gets pretty hot over 30 degree C. rain is moody. sometimes no rain for weeks and then it rains a lot.
    in winter it freezes all over for months. so all the plants I have grow in pots.
    veggies are definitely seasonal. they all die in the fall. so do the flowers we grow outside.

    I've never tried peppers as an ornamental, now you have be curious. I'll have to see if there are any hardy for my zone, would be fun next spring.
