It is springtime here, so I just bought some small
potted capsicum (bell pepper) plants. I got two
labeled simply "Orange" and two labeled "California
Yellow" (no technical names.)
I also got four tomatoes, but selected all the same
This got me wondering, with these different varieties
(breeds, I guess), are the flowers compatible at all?
If a bee hops from a flower on the "Orange" capsicum
plant, into a flower on the "Yellow" capsicum plant,
would the pollen on its feet trigger the genetic signal
to make a capsicum?
Can other plants, like, say a Beefsteak tomato and a
Moneymaker tomato do that?
If so, how might that effect the fruit/veggie?
Thanks in advance...
