Some Kind of Pepper Plant?

Please help me ID the attached photo of my pepper plant. I've grown it from the seeds of a previous plant. The peppers are red and about 3/4 inch long. It also produces white blossoms. Also - do I need to thin it out more or will the plants "get along" ok as is? The pot's about 12 inches wide.

Thanks so much!

Re: Some Kind of Pepper Plant?

I'm fairly certain that most cultivated peppers will require fruit for someone to identify.

Re: Some Kind of Pepper Plant?

Thanks for the reply, Daniel. Unfortunately, the plant's too young to produce peppers and I didn't save any from the old plant (I used the fruit's seeds to grow the one in the picture), but they are red peppers and average 3/4 inches - white blossoms, too.

Can you tell me if you think that I need to thin out the plants in the pot?

Re: Some Kind of Pepper Plant?

That is very close for pepper plants. One plant could eventually fill that pot. I probably would not leave more than 4 plants.

There are many kinds of peppers. I agree with Daniel, it will be impossible to ID without fruit. The plants may produce peppers much like the ones you took the seeds from, then again they might not.

Thanks, Eric. I guess my main concern at this point is how many to leave in the pot - I'll thin it out to four of 'em. I can ID it later once it starts bearing fruit.
