       @The21stCenturyHousewife My girls love to cook and I can’t think of a better gift to give them then teaching them at a young age how to cook and how to cook with wholesome healthy ingredients.  Thanks for the great blog hop, I enjoy it every week!

    I don’t think this is accurate. I thought it was really cool and then I asked some master gardeners and they said it’s not true …

    You are correct Jessica, this is absolutely false. Even if the male/female thing wasn’t a load of poppycock, even the correlation to taste based on bumps is incorrect: http://www.academicjournals.org/jhf/pdf/pdf2010/March/Sharma%20et%20al..pdf Long story short bell pepper lobe number doesn’t affect taste, but positively correlates with number of branches of plant and length of the harvest (i.e. the more branches or the longer the harvest period, the more the lobes). That’s about it. Feel free to buy any shaped bell peppers you want. :)

    No such thing as male and female peppers!!!!!

    According to foodreference.com:
    Question. I was just told today that when choosing bell peppers I should look for one with four bumps on the bottom because it is a “female” pepper and thus will be sweeter. The “male” pepper has only three bumps. Is this factual???
    Answer. Peppers have complete flowers, that is both male and female parts in the same flower. *
    Male and female fruit can only come from plant types that have separate male and female flowers, and with a few exceptions, only the female flowers produce fruit. (one of the exceptions – some papaya male flowers will set fruit).
    The number of lobes is related to the specific variety of pepper. There are varieties of peppers that produce 2, 3-4, or 3-5 lobed peppers. The 4 lobed ‘bell’ pepper was (and is) more popular in the U.S., so plants have been breed for this characteristic.
    * (Pepper trees [black & white pepper] have separate male and female flowers).

    :) thanks! Love peppers! Now I can choose them more carefully!

    False. It has nothing to do with sweetness. It is a marketing variety. Read above link by Stuart.

    How cool, I will have to take notice to see if I can tell a difference!
