In some cases genes are as simple as one gene being dominant over another. But in many cases it's a bit more complicated.
This guy has a bit of insight into the pathways of pepper colors and how different mutations result in different colors:

How are you going about selecting your F1 Cross? What colors/flavors/shapes are you looking for?


This first attempt will be a random crossing. I'll see what comes up in the F1 generation, pick the most interesting results, and then repeat the process in the F2 generation. I don't really have predetermined qualities I'm looking for this time. Though, if I could choose, it would be interesting to create an olive-color or purple when ripe pepper. I doubt that's possible with these two peppers?

Don't you need stability so you can keep kicking out the same thing?


I assume so, yes. I'm pretty new at this though. I was thinking I could reestablish stability in the next generation after the latent traits of the Mad Hatter F1 show themselves. I would just pick one of the random expressions in the F1 generation and work to stabilize it. It doesn't worry me too much that the Mad Hatter will reveal some recessive genes in the 1st generation. I hope I am understanding this correctly.

I'm not sure if this is technically a 'plant out' or not. I wish I was growing the number of peppers most of you are. Unfortunately, mine have to go in containers right now. I am trying to attract Pepper Daemons.

Judging from your last pic, i think i see evidence that your problem is probably werewolves.

Maybe it is just you that they don't like.


no, pretty sure it's just men in general. It's clear you don't understand Seattle or Portland. The females are actually secretly setting up concentration camps for men. You'll hear about it on Alex Jones in a couple of months when the story breaks. The females are trying to get em all finished before they start rounding up the men.
