Upon removing the poor thing, I noticed that it was not one baby, but two- conjoined twin baby peppers. This whole thing was too traumatizing for me, and I couldn't bring myself to eat the mamma pepper or the baby peppers. To date, the pappa pepper has not been identified." Twin baby peppers! Mazel tov!

    I hate to snark (don’t listen to him, he loves to snark), but this hardly seems anomalous enough for the museum. At least from the suppliers we used when I worked in the restaurant biz, about every tenth or twelth pepper you cut open has one or more embryonic peppers in it.

    My sister found one just like that. It was a bell pepper also.The one on the outside was mild but the “baby” was as hot as fire

    I find this to be altogether TOO commom place to be an anomaly.

    Aha! Even though it’s not that anomolous, I still love peppers like these cause it reminds me of my sister… She HATES these things, (they creep her out somehow) but she forces herself to eat them because she’s a medical student and knows how good the peppers are for people.
