There is a common belief that male bell peppers have 3 lobes, while female bell peppers have 4 or more lobes. However, this is actually a myth and is not based on any scientific evidence.
The number of lobes on a bell pepper is determined by genetic factors and can vary depending on the variety of the pepper. It has nothing to do with whether the pepper is male or female.
In fact, bell peppers do not have a gender at all. They are hermaphroditic, meaning they have both male and female reproductive organs within the same flower. Therefore, there is no such thing as a male or female bell pepper.
So next time you hear someone talking about male and female bell peppers based on the number of lobes, you can dispel this myth and share the correct information with them.
