Kee! Kee! Kee! The chillies above look like the male penis, don't they? Well, they are not a freak of nature but are from a species of chillies called Peter Pepper (scientific name capsicum annuum var. annuum ‘Peter’). The unusual plant originated from the southern states of America. Other names the plant is called include Chilli Willy, Penis Pepper and Penis Chilli. I read that the chillies are edible but people grow them more as ornamental plants. I am wondering how I can get my hands on the seeds so that I can plant them.
