In the following thread over in the gardening instance of stack exchange there is a suggestion that a plant will pause fruiting during the period while the remaining segment between the node and the pod dies and falls off after plucking the fruit ...

What do yo think?

I often pinch mine in he middle, and in a sense, I might be pinching the cross-section such that it doesn't lose hydration as quickly and essentially holding back my fruiting process ...

Now I'm considering using my little fiskars and snipping them more tightly ...

Interesting ...

I'm skeptical. Most plants compartmentalize wounds to some extent, and the abscission process for the dead stem would be fairly rapid in any event. This whole process is controlled by auxins, which are released by developing fruit. When fruit ripen or are picked, the absence of the auxins causes the fruit stem to fall away. Removal of the auxin producing fruit should effectively create an instant command to the plant to drop the stalk.

Oh cool, it's explained plainly in there ...

By the way, whatever the one chocolate pod was, I ate it raw, thin-sliced on a burger last night and afterwards my lip felt swollen like I'd just left the dentist! ...

It was a chocolate Bhut Jolokia. If you ate that whole thing I don't wanna be your stomach today.

but to be honest I just pull them off - usually they break at the node as that is the weak point.


^ That.
