Does anyone know what these are?
Their mainly green, but I spotted one turning red
The greens are very spicy!

Looks like some sort of pepper - maybe cayenne?

PlantWillDance; hello and welcome,
Without a frame of size reference those could be Cayenne Thai or Serrano and if you're REALLY good at growing maybe even any type of Tabasco. Enjoy!

Most green peppers do turn red if you leave them on the plant long enough.

Yes, long list of too many possible varieties that they could be.

Take a bite. The hotness (or lack) may be a good clue.

There are so many hot ones that look similar and yes there are many mild ones look like that also. I don't know how you will ever get a for sure ID. But taste should at least narrow down the choices.

Well I don't think taking a bite is a good idea, I tasted a bit from the inside, and it burned my throat, tongue, and lips.
So its super spicy!!
