In Topic: Last season I got my peppers really hot, I think it's due to the compost...

I heard that if you plant normal peppers next to hot peppers, the normal will have heat also. Not sure if it's true tho.


Have you grown them close to each other?


As others had mention already it cannot be true. I've heard of this misconception, we even had a thread about it here, but it's not proven yet. Although there are some thoughts on the peppers placenta getting the heat or even the roots interconnecting. Anyway that is not the case for sure as I had literally hundreds of plants all getting more heat, regardless of the place in the garden or pot, and I had very few sweet varieties.

I've started with ornamentals and have tried over 20 varieties so far. They're all edible, but also look good. Mostly its just the heat, but there are some with nice flavor and just two I can recall that tasted bad.

Brilliant name for a pepper though :)

I've tried some annuum leaves before, wasn't impressed with them, though the younger - the better. I'll have to give it a second try for other varieties I'm growing this year.

Doesn't look like pepper to me.
