making a hybrid veg?

  1. so i was wondering if plants (like peppers in my case) can pollenate different varieties of each other? like can i have a jalepeno and another kind of pepper cross? and the seeds from that would be the cross? is it possible ? how? just been wondering and noones been helpful on other sites..
  2. ya know there is something similar called grafting, but im not sure if this works with peppers.

  3. i guess its not really too similar but its cool info

    this seems like a plausible response?

  5. yeah chilli are terrible/amazing (depending what you want) for cross pollinating. its not an exact science tho the best bet is to hand pollinate to make sure. might get something like 50% original 25% cross pollinated 25% random. it can take time but just keep crossing and crossing and crossing and you are bound to get something cool. will give you an idea of some of the variety.

    big chilli fan tho. i have a yellow moruga scorpion which is super tasty/hot. and a purple variety. mabbbyyyy i should cross them  :hippie: 

    also going to grow these next spring (southern hemisphere)
