Will jalapeno and cayenne peppers cross pollinate? Seed saving doesn't always work out as planned, but produces some unique and interesting fruit. If anyone knows whether the cayapeno pepper seeds will produce cayapeno peppers next year let me know. Thanks!Jalapeno peppers and cayenne peppers belong to the same species of chili pepper plant, Capsicum annuum, therefore they will and do cross-pollinate. Peppers and tomatoes have perfect flowers that are pollinated before opening so the risk for cross-pollination by insects is less than with other plants of the same species, but, they certainly can and do cross-pollinate. Sweet bell peppers are also the same species of plant as cayennes and jalapenos, so they too will cross-pollinate with hot peppers and may produce some unexpected offspring the following season if you save seeds. So, you might end up with sweet chilies or hot me on Facebook for watching, commenting, subscribing to, and supporting this channel.
