Hi all,

I live in the highlands of Panama (the country, not the city in FL), and recently acquired a large property that has numerous plants, vegetables, fruits, etc. Needless to say, I have a few that I haven't been able to specifically identify, and it seems like we discover something new in the yard daily! This one appears to be some sort of ornamental pepper plant. It has small leaves, small white flowers, and peppers that are about the size of a corn kernel - perhaps a little smaller. The color ranges are purple, greeen, red, slight yellow. Not sure when or if they'll be ripe, but was hoping someone could assist with a specific identification.

Thanks in advance!

I was hoping for a more specific type, but we had figured they were ornamental peppers.

Do a google.com search and look at images of ornamental peppers.

It could be a "bird pepper", or "tepin" type. They are super hot; ornimental ones usually aren't .
