ID REQUEST: I was given this pepper plant and I can't figure out what kind it is. The pepper I harvested wasn't hot at all.

I’ve grown those before, I believe they are a type of Aji chili. They don’t have any real heat but have amazing flavor, I’d wait until they turn red to harvest.

Blast! That was the biggest chili on the plant too.. I will do that then! Thank you so much.

Fun fact. You can take picture while on plant.

I am very aware, thanks so much for your insightful comment.

It is a scotch bonnet

No. Called scotch bonnet because it looks like a scotsman's hat. That does not.

There are a lot of bonnets that never get the perfect "bonnet" shape. Js.

So far this seems to be the most likely one, my only concern is that the peppers have been on the plant for a good while now and are the same color whereas the scotch bonnet pepper seems to change color after a certain point.

I am growing starfish chillies at the moment and it looks like this https://fataliiseeds.net/product/starfish/ They are a really tall pant

Look like scotch bonnets to me.
