Could someone here in this forum tell me if this is a rooster spur plant. I know nothing about growing anything. However all of a sudden people have been giving me plants not knowing, that I know nothing about them. I have posted pics here, any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh by the way I love Daves Garden I have found some very helpful info here. Through my learning experience with plants of any kind, I will take all the advice I can get.

It's a nice looking plant, never heard of a 'rooster spur' pepper though. Hope someone can ID it for you and welcome to the wonderful world of plants! I'm sure that the folks that have been giving you plants can tell that at least you're interested and that is the first start of having a 'real' green thumb!

The peppers look like Rooster Spur peppers. I'm growing them this year, but my plants are too small to compare at this point. The fruits look correct though.
