Artist's Description

I was chopping some peppers the other day when I came across this, so what did I do?
Photographed it
Went on internet to find out about it, found out what caused it and that it was ok to eat
Ate it.

That little pepper inside a bigger pepper is called an “internal proliferation.” Its form can vary from irregular and contorted to a near-perfect but sterile fruit.

A pepper growing inside a pepper is a type of parthenocarpy, which is the formation of fruits without fertilization or the formation of seeds. No one is sure what causes them, but temperature and nutrient levels have been ruled out.
