chinense Is the stinger trait from Reapers and Scorpions dominant or recessive?


that's not how it works.
Genes may be dominant or recessive but it is rare that a trait can be ascribed to a single gene or locus. And when a trait involves more than one gene then it gets very messy and there might be no clear answer.
Is the stinger a trait that can be traced back to one single gene or locus? I doubt it, but I am open to the arguments to the opposite effect. Educate me.
@POTAWIE used to have a theory that stingers were possibly caused by some trait where the flower ring sticks to the pepper in early growth stages and deforms the pepper. Always made sense to me though I have no idea if its been proven or disproven.
