Size, habit, and color of these Peru Purple Chilis

Quincy, MA

Just curious if anyone has ever seen unusually large Peru Purple chilis on their plants. I'm wondering did one of my plants hybridize? One of the two plants - PeruPurpleNormalsm.jpg has normal-looking purple fruits, and they are typical size of about an 1 1/2' long and 1/2" wide at the top and they hang upright.

But the other plant PeruPurpleLargesm.jpg has the fruits hanging down and they are about 2 3/4" long by 3/4" wide at the top and they are almost black in color - perhaps slowly turning to purple. The volume of the peppers on that plant is perhaps 3 - 4 times normal-sized Peru Purple chilis.

I've never seen a Peru Purple plant with that kind of fruit so perhaps I mixed another seed in or is this normal?

Any comments appreciated.
