Preggers Pepper: An Interesting Find

Sometimes you can't think of anything to say on a blog, but then something cool turns up.

An ordinary pepper my father was cutting up Israeli salad turned out to be a mommy pepper, shielding two little baby peppers in her womb. Clearly, these little peppers take after the daddy pepper.

Which makes me wonder: do I feel at all bad for eating a pregnant pepper? And is the phrase "pregnant pepper" really as funny as it sounds?

Answers: no. And yes.

By the way, in case you were wondering, these were fraternal twin peppers. They were sprouting from two different seeds.


PS. Pregnant pepper. Hee hee.


  1. That's really cute! I've never seen anything like that! : )

  2. Heh heh, yeah. I found it strangely adorable.

    Thanks for the comment!
