    Hello!

    I have started growing what I thought was meant to be a green pepper...they started green in colour, turned black and are now brown but still look too small to be a green pepper. Is this normal?

    Many thanks,
    Sam

    Sounds like a Chocolate Douglah. A very hot chili. Welcome to the forum!

            Well it looks like a kidney to me.:biggrin:
            But I'm sure its an OK pepper, although not what you thought you was buying perhaps.

            All peppers start green but usually ripen to a different colour if you leave them long enough.
