Thats good advice about using dry ingredients where possible though. I hadn't considered dehydrating my fruits before adding them to the sauce.

looks like a sunburn, makes sense if there are no pigments in the pod to protect it from all that UV.


Some here will say that it looks like end rot. If you want you could fert with some Calcium Nitrate fertilizer.

What do you mean with 'do some cool things when they start to segregate'? Do you have any examples of those 'cool things'?


Basically what the others said. I don't know if i would call them "dormant genes" but it seems to me that there are lots of dominant alleles in wild and semi-wild species that combine to produce many small fruit. They those alleles are randomly replaced by a domesticated pepper, you can get a lot of different variation in recombinant inbred lines.

I can't find any evidence of this right now but I am sure it exists, I'll come back to this later.
