Re: Peppers, was Drought...


You gotta watch those nasty little garden gnomes, they get into everything. Can't be trusted, don't tinker with them.

I think that's right, Sue. Cross pollination wouldn't show up in the current generation anyway. The villain is likely mislabeled starts or seeds, or "corrupted" seeds. One of the risks one takes with seed exchange programs, for example, is the purity, or lack thereof, of the seeds one gets. I also suspect that sweetness in banana peppers is recessive and any tinkering with the gnome will probably produce hot.

Peppers don't cross pollinate like that.. From what I have learned, the
hotter the weather is when the fruit sets, the hotter the pepper will be.
But sweet peppers don't get hot...did you plant from seed or plants? You
might have gotten a mislabeled plant or seed packet, as there are hot banana
peppers as well.

Or, could they have cross-pollinated with peppers that are hotter? Pepper
specialist, anyone?

I have heard that if peppers don't get enough water they will be hotter.
I
wonder if that could be the case for you?

Cathy,I thought you were one of the lucky ones that got some of the
rain
that
has fallen all around us..but not here. My daughter in Mahomet 45  min
from
here got 5 in. last week. We got 1/2 in but it was so dry the grass,
etc.
is
still crispy. Our pond has begun to show it's bare bottom again just
like
last
year. The good news is we have our first tomatoes! The little yellow
cherry type
are the best esp. eaten right off the vine. Can anyone tell me why my
"sweet
banana peppers" are so hot? Kathy
