I don't know specifically re these but culinary varieties are selected from the best fruiting species, which are cross pollinated, hybridised etc to make something worth eating.

Yours may have seeded back to something close to a wild form over the years.

Just a theory, extrapolating from other species.

Lucifer is the most red, not sure re most common. Would have thought the old orange job we used to call Montbretia was still the most common.

Seed raised, they all creep back towards orange.

The labeling as Lucifer (which it isn't) is probably down to ignorance

Interesting plant. It appears in my garden some years.

I've heard of Jimson Weed but had no idea this was it. I call it Datura stramonium,  or Thornapple when talking to non plant people
