I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
I can't tell what plant you are describing. If it was an edible pepper you may be describing tabasco or serrano peppers. There are also ornamental peppers of many types that are also edible.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
