Fushimi grow elongated to at least 6 inches and narrow at about half an inch. These are one of the Japanese peppers and I pick mine green. But if left on the plant longer they do turn red. They may look like a hot pepper but they have no heat, only flavor.

These are usually eaten whole, including the inside with seeds and all.

These are extremely productive plants.
