    Sorry they are not white Naga. Is the flower white with a splash of green?

    Thanks. I have had some suspicions as the plants have grown. When immature the fruits were tanslucent white and short. After a sudden spurt in warm weather the fruits lengthened and turned red. This should not have happened, they should have remained white. I am trying to contact the vendors, ETSYNET, to find out what I have got.

    The flowers are 100% white. See photo. Unlike my Lemon drop plants which have green streaks where the greenfly like to hide! phot also included.

    It's certainly a c.chinense or annuum, which is a good start. Flower looks annuum, but there appears more than one bud per node.

    They could be Naga Jolokia, which in itself just adds to the confusion.

    That's a name used commonly to describe chillies and has been used on various species including c.annuum, c.frutescens and c.chinense.

    I suppose if it's related to a Naga and has a immature colour close to white then it could be called a 'white Naga'

    For reference here is what is think of when you say White Naga.

    Can you just check how many buds per node please as I'm beginning to think C.annuum.

    Etsynet supplied the seeds in a small plastic lock bag with the exact picture above. I have sent them pictures and queried what they have sent.
    They were described as White Naga Bhut Jolokia. Clearly what I have does not match the picture.
