Bhut Jolokia flowers
I have 8 BJs that are about 5 mos. old an beginning to flower and produce fruit. I have notived some of the flowers have 4 petals while most have 5. I help pollinate by tickling the flowers in the late afternoon and have about 3 fruit on some plants and 5+ on others with more trying immature fruits trying to "hang on".
I have not bothered to track this but was curious if anyone knows of any correlation to the # of flower petals and likelyhood of fruit forming and or maturing?
Like I said just curious.
Thanks in advance... The Capt.
