What kind of chili plant is this? I bought this chili plant from the market today but don't know what kind of chili it is. Any ideas?
The erect habit of fruit setting is a unique characteristic of ornamental peppers and wild pepper species. The erect habit is known to be controlled by the up locus on pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) chromosome 12 source
