I have a few of these chili plants growing and they produce a longish (approx 4", sometimes curled chili that turns brown and begins to shrivel (slightly) when it ripens. It does not transition to a different, more standard colour (red/orange) and I know that this is the right colour, because the seeds packet that I bought had a picture of a brownish chili that was shriveled on the outside.
However, I did not bother saving the packet and I do not recall what type of chili it was. I couldn't find new packets in the store to check either (perhaps I could just take a fruit in and they could identify, but that's what this site is for!). Does anyone know what type of chilli this might be?
If it helps, these chilies are by far the mildest I've ever seen. I can eat them straight off the plant raw/ripe without wincing and they don't burn the tongue one tiny bit.
