My wife fixed some fish today, with a sauteed vegetable medley as a side dish. She came to my office laughing, during her preparations, and carrying this half pepper. She said the inner piece was already loose and rattling before she cut the pepper open. Also, she said that she noticed that the pepper had developed a crack in it as it sat the last couple days in the fridge. I tried to put the "baby" back where it was attached before snapping the photo.
I wonder what would have happened if it had been left on the plant. You notice that the end of the baby is green, which makes me wonder if a fair amount of light was coming through the pepper walls. Have any of you folks seen such a thing?
I just can't help it; I have to wonder who the daddy was.
