The little tag thing for a few of our pepper plants got lost and I have no idea what kind of peppers they are.  I can't do pics right now but here is description.   The pepper is very small - about the size of a cherry tomato.  Each plant only grew one pepper, and they started green but turn to red. Very firm.  Also, the peppers grew upside down, with super short stem. Haven't tried any yet to determine whether sweet or hot pepper.  

Any thoughts.

Thanks to mommydew, we have an answer :) It is a cherry hot pepper.  Thanks everyone for helpng! :)

 I'm no expert, but I'd say there's a strong possiblility those are habenaros.

nope - I have a bunch of habaneros. Habaneros are more bell shaped and real wrinkly.  These are small, round, smooth and firm. 

Thanx tho.....This is driving crazy lol.  I spent an hour yesterday looking at pictures of peppers and never did see one that looks like these.

It sounds like a cherry hot we have them in our garden and they look like cherry tomatos and they grew upside down with a short stem and they started out green then turned red.  Hope this helps

Ugh. Well when you get one, send it. I think we can better help you that way. Also, if you have a local extension office, they can tell you what it is if you bring them one.
