I will keep any eye on them and wait for them to get a little bigger not sure they are ripe yet too small (either I managed to get a small variety or mine are just little!) But I may check for flavor/heat this weekend.
If the plants are that full, that may be contributing to the smaller size. It takes a lot of energy from the plant to grow all that fruit.
Last year I had larger peppers but with less heat. This year, the fruit tends to be smaller in general but the heat is ramped way up.
There are different varieties that grow larger than the ones I now have and I see them in the local markets but they are not near as hot as the ones I am growing.
