This growing season I'm going to start crossing some of my peppers. I did enough reading on the forum and elsewhere to begin to get the hang of the rules/laws of pepper crossing. If I am understanding correctly, within a range (no two cross are ever the same?), it's fairly easy to predict at least some of the results that will express themselves in an F1 plant - because dominant genes always express themselves over recessive genes in the first generation. The problem is, other than knowing that the color 'red' is a dominant gene, I don't know any other 'dominant genes/traits' in peppers.
Can someone predict with a reasonable degree of accuracy what I'll end up with in the F1 generation if I cross the Mad Hatter (itself an F1 cross) with the Golden Cayenne? I know that since the Mad Hatter is an F1 already, the results can be unpredictable, because recessive genes will show themselves, but let's just pretend that the Mad Hatter is a stable F6 pepper.
Is there a list of normally dominant pepper traits available somewhere so I can make my own predictions?
I have plenty more plant genetics questions but these two questions would help me form a foundation for greater possible understanding. My ultimate goal is to grow Pepper Daemons embedded within the pepper pods of a massively evolved pepper plant that glows with bioluminescent radiance at night. I may have to splice jellyfish genes into the pepper genes to achieve the bioluminosity, but I'll worry about that when it comes time.
Tenk u. i PepperDaemon.
