Mustard Bhutlah with anthocyanin

I'm growing two Mustard Bhutlah plants. One of them has black on its leaves and fruits. It started out having a lot of black, but soon a lot of the black dissipated. The stems and branches are black, except on the lower half of the plant. One of the fruits appears to be all black. I discovered that it had set five fruits by 13 Aug 2019. It seems to have fewer flowers per node than the other Mustard Bhutlah, but it does have multiple flowers on some nodes.

The anthocyanin plant is producing before the other plant. I'm pretty excited that it has fruits. I should be able to grow it again next year (without taking cuttings). My Mustard Bhutlah's are the only C. chinense peppers to have flowered. I have some Habaneros growing, but they've been stunted.

Anyway, of this species, I only plan to grow Mustard Bhutlahs next year.

The fruits are getting longer. The non-dark fruits turned darker, and the dark one isn't as thoroughly dark anymore.

The regular Mustard Bhutlah has fruit now, too.

The anthocyanin is disappearing on the fruits. The anthocyanin that remains is reddish, for some unknown reason. I've never heard of that before (it's redder IRL than in the pictures).

I don't know what these, or even the regular Mustard Bhutlah will look like when they're ripe.

Here's a video that shows more detail and fruits than the pictures (although there are more fruits on the anthocyanin plant than the video shows, I believe):

Some fruits ripened orange a while ago, with no black on the fruits. I plan to harvest them, today. Very prolific, beautiful plant, and fruit! Please excuse the seeming calcium deficiency symptoms.

The frost is forecasted in the near future. So, here's my harvest!



These fruits are more orange in real life than they appear in the picture:
