It's an ornamental pepper. I can't remember the name. I had one years ago but never ate any of the peppers from it.

It looks very much like the Twilight pepper that I grew years ago, except that one started out as purple peppers. Have you tasted any of them yet, to see if it is a hot or sweet pepper?

Some of the ornamental peppers can be quite hot.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

That's some kind of ornamental, but I can't pinpoint it. They are all edible, however they are usually hot.
When I wait 3 months for my mango seedling to sprout, and then it damps off.

That is a Thai Hot Ornamental. It is edible. it's also very hot with a Scoville rating of 50,000-100,000. A Jalapeno, for example, runs in the 1,000-5,000 range.

How do I know this? No, I'm not an expert gardener! I mistakenly bought one this year. I am currently drying the peppers to grind for red pepper flakes.
