Jalapeno Peppers & Capsicums

Started by Jacqui - New Zealand Friday, 06 March 2015

I love munching raw capsicums. Today I picked a huge red capsicum & took a big bite. A couple of hours later I still have a bit of a chilli "zing" in my mouth. I have Jalapeno Chillis & Red Capsicums growing the same spot. Have they cross pollinated?

Definitely, yes; the capsicum family is quite promiscuous. If you liked the zing in your capsicum you should save the seeds. They make lovely shells for stuffing and baking.
