One of the veggies that my Keplerians grow is peppers. I have heard of some sweet peppers cross pollinating with hot peppers making the sweet peppers hotter and the hot peppers sweeter. However that involves a minimum of 2 plants. 1 per type of pepper.
So I was wondering if it is plausible for a single plant to produce both sweet and hot peppers.
I think it would be in 1 of 2 ways.
Either the plant produces 2 types of flowers, 1 for sweet peppers and 1 for hot peppers and those different flowers attract different pollinators.
Or once the plant reaches a certain stage it will transition from 1 type to another. Some might produce hot peppers first and then start producing sweet peppers and others might do just the opposite. This could still involve 2 types of flowers but only one type being produced at any given point.
Is it plausible that a single plant could produce both hot and sweet peppers?
