Mystery peppers!

So when I got my plants from the store I picked out some green peppers for my sister but when they started to fruit I got this and don't know when to pick or even what it is! It first was green then yellow and now orangey red!

Re: Mystery peppers!

could be almost anything. you can harvest pretty much any pepper from green through ripe/colored...you should probably pick that one and taste-test, find out if it's hot or sweet at least.

I think it looks like a carrot pepper or a wax pepper.
