Ok I will try and explain.

Most of the domesticated chillies have distinctive flowers/colours

The number of buds that emerge from the same point or node also helps us identify the species. Some only put out one bud, stalk and flower per node. Others multiple.

I am struggling to see the photos, they seems small.
