In our strip of soil in the back yard we have these chili-like plants growing. I have done very thorough research, yet I am not sure if they are the decorative kind (and yes, those do exist) or the kind for human consumption.

I would experiment, but I am not interested in possibly poisoning anybody. When these pictures were taken, they were greenish-yellow, but now they are a gaudy shade of orange:

       any ideas out there?
