Chilli Pepper on the Windowsill - Cayenne Pepper has red leg!

I realised that Cayenne pepper differs from other peppers - it has red leg - can you see it on the picture? While Scotch Bonnet on the right and Zvonek on the left are green.

Difference in size comes from differences in sowing time (Scotch Bonnet is 11 days older) and in germination time and vitality. Cayenne and Zvonek were planted at the same time, in the same soil, but Cayenne seems to be stronger.

Scotch Bonnet day 52
Cayenne day 41
Zvonek day 41
