Well, I have to say, the subject is a little exagerated... they are in fact too young to be teenagers.
This is the thing. I had most of my plants in a pot not too deep. When they grew, I moved most of them to bigger pots, and left a couple in the pot because I had no more space to put them. They won´t grow too much (well, one of the them actually did), but in case some plague attacks the big one, I could transplant one of these. Apartment gardening, you could call it. However.
I had two thais, one that looks like another variety of thai (but grow a lot more than the others), and a mistery one in the pot. A couple of days ago, I noticed new sprouts were emerging. I didn´t plant seeds, but you know, it happens, I will never know why.
But yesterday I noticed something really, but really weird... it´s the leaves. They first pair they grew were certainly a first pair of pepper leaves. Or so I thought. But then... well, see it for yourselves:

What´s that??!!??!?! Did I grow mutant plants?????? Are they even peppers? I swear, I had no doubt they were with their first pair of leaves... but now they don´t seem peppers anymore. But they are in the pepper´s pot, so... I don´t know.
Any clues?

Exactly!!! Same thing I thoght... but I didn´t planted tomatos, nor throwed tomatos to fertilize the soil, which could explain tomato growing... I´m really confused.

Looks like tomato seedlings to me too. If you didn't plant any tomatoes, the seeds might have been brought in by birds.

Great, thank you so much, it has to be tomato then. No birds, for sure, it´s an indoor crop... and I didn´t throw any tomato or tomato seeds. Weird, but indeed, it happens.

Thanks again!  :P

Homegrown tomatoes are very different to store bought and well worth trying. Definitely not a complete loss.

Agree. The problem with an indoor tomato growing is that one plant won´t provide more than some tomatos, and I have no room for more plants.

But now that they appeared, I have to keep one plant, and see what happens... I just have to, hahaha,

I will. Now more sprouts emerged. Again, no birds inside the house, no seeds thrown to the pot, nothing. Still intrigued.

At your request, I´m sending pics of the plant.

Looks like it is tomato indeed. Classic yellow flowers... and clasically attracting all kinds of pests. I found legions of them, even battling one race against the other, under those poor and few leaves.

 

So, not in its best shape...

Looks like a little tomato is developing:

I don´t know how much I will keep it, because it like a magnet to bugs, which they tend to jump, of course, to the pepper plants. Besides, I don´t really have place for another big plant. But I´m still curious about what will grow up. Hopefully, it´s a cherry plant, which I could keep. BTW, more sprouts are emerging in different... And I´m totally clueless of its origin.

Well, I´ll give it a try...The only problem is that I have in a very small pot, so I don´t think that it will grow too big... but I´m curious enough to see what type of tomatoes it will grow, so I´m keeping it a little more  :P

Late response, but......

 

I get "volunteer" tomatoes in the eighth acre every year. all one needs is to toss just one overripe aside or a couple get forgotten in the fall, and for the next several years they can decide to germ and establish. I got a yellow pear tomato last year in an opposite corner of the garden, and the last time I planted yellow pear tomatoes was 5 years ago!

 

The volunteers are heirloom and seem to grow and produce faster than anything you might baby on a seedling shelf.


Do what I mean, not what I say.....
