Weirdo pepper

Postby ken » Mon Aug 01, 2011 2:44 pm

Have just harvested four sweet pepper Bell Boy for roasting. My wife cut them open. Essentially they are all fine for eating, but what was odd was that one of them had half a dozen mini peppers in the seed cavity. I haven't come across this before - has anyone else? Any thoughts on the cause? (We don't have a greenhouse these days. The peppers are being grown hydroponically in the conservatory.)

Perfectly normal. I get these even from 'shop bought' peppers. Cheers, :o Tony.

Yes it quite often happens the plus is you get extra pepper!
I had a siamese twin cucumber this year. :)
