Notes:

I have several of these plants growing along a back wall, directly below the power lines. They’re perennials with small white flowers that mature to what looks like peppers!

    Yes, they look like a type of pepper (Capsicum). You should try the local County Agriculture Extension from the included link below for a confirmed ID before consuming any possible edible plants. Best wishes!

    Yes, it indeed is a pepper plant! I picked one, sliced it and tasted it. Yes, it tasted like a chili, but boy is it hot! They’re small, all a half-inch or so.
