Anyone have experience growing #padron #chillies? They're not meant to be spicy (well maybe 1 in 20), but I bought some seeds from a garden stall in Barcelona that seem to almost exclusively hot chillies. They're also more... balloon shaped? Than the padron plant I received from a fellow gardener (which also is not spicy). They look kind of like halfway between padrons and habaneros... any ideas what might be going on?
I found this article and I didn't know that there could be heat problems with peppers.
I grow my own indoors with a lot of sun exposure and water them twice a day - they are hot:]
Chili Peppers Not Hot – How To Get Hot Chili Peppers
@LOCONTO Hmm, the problem is I'm kinda looking for the opposite - my chillies *shouldn't* be hot, but are 😅
This will help with my serranos though; which were basically skinny bell peppers last year! 😂
@gaffen ewh*, ok ! 😅
According to that paper, they may be too well in your garden tho
@gaffen it's also maybe a matter of cross pollination.
Do you havr hot peppers nearby ?
@LOCONTO No, they're the only peppers I have apart from a single serrano plant; everything else is veggies and herbs... 🤔
@LOCONTO I FOUND SOMETHING!
It's in spanish but it's the most scientific answer I've found so far!
@gaffen w00t, sweet, thanks !
