Huh. Some of my peppers are exploding (okay, the fruit are just splitting open) - is that because it's so damp here, or should I be worried?

    (Snickering.) No, but possibly some radioactive materials...

    I've also had habanero seeds sprouting inside the pods, while the pods are still on the plants and not even overripe. It's been a weird spring.

    I've seen it happen when someone over waters peppers or tomatoes. If the flesh is somewhat clear on the inside that could be a small sign of too much water.
