The Q&A Archives: Ornamental Peppers

Question: I beg forgiveness from the powers that be for buying a non-Burpee seed packet! The seeds supposedly grow purple peppers with green leaves

Answer: It sounds like you have a hot ornamental pepper variety such as 'Firecracker' which has purple stems, leaves and young fruit, that eventually mature to red. It curious they say it's inedible, because all ornamental peppers are edible too, many too hot to handle, but won't kill you. That's my guess, try growing it and see what happens!
