Pink Habanero with white leaves
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi,
I am growing 6 Pink Habanero plants. 5 out of 6 have white and wrinkled leaves. The 6th plant looks greener but also has some white in its leaves.
Is it innocent? Variegated leaves? Or is there something wrong with them.
None of my other peppers have this, so I am thinking it is maybe something specific for this pepper variety?

Fish Pepper has variegated leaves.

Odd looking... I've not grown the pink variety, so I can't say with any authority. It almost looks like UV sun damage...?

Urah , maybe crossed with Fish pepper.

Is anybody else growing the pink Habanero uit of the mmmm?
If it is a cross, isn't it weird that most (all?) of the plants came from crossed seeds? If a pink habanero flower got pollinated by, let's say, a fish pepper, I would think only some of the seeds were pollinated by the fish pollen. And other seeds by pink habanero him/herself. Chances are small that only fish pollen got on the stigma before any of those got a chance of self pollinating? I assume in case of a cross not all seeds are crossed? (I have no clue, no experience / knowledge about crossing)

Probably genetic but Roundup (glyphosate) drift has similar symptoms.

That poison is not welcome in my house / garden. I am growing in organic potting soil.
I wonder how the plants are able to photosynthese with so little green in their leaves.

I germinated 6 pink Hab plants from the mmmm 5 made it, all look normal.

Are they or have they been outdoors in real sun? I agree with Jon, it appears to be sunburn but what do they look like now a couple of days later?

Hi,
Were these started in a greenhouse? :D

Ann123 March 18, 2018 04:05 PM

Not in a greenhouse, nor outdoors. They have been all the time in the attic under a velux window. All the other peppers look normal. Only the pink Habaneros have this. They have this since their first true leaves but I don't remember how their cotyledons looked like. They still look like a few days ago. They grow. I 'll just let them grow. I' ll see how they do.

Quite interesting if they are variegated Ann, keep us up to date on how they do

To me it looks like the leaves were possibly wet and then got sun scalded..

I'll take a new pic tomorrow with daylight. Even the very new, tiny leaves are white.
I don't water them from above, so no water gets on the leaves.
This is a bit off-topic but I heard the water droplet = magnifying glass = sun scald is a myth. Charles Dowding waters his plants from above. Evening, morning, noon, he says it makes no difference if and when the water gets on the leaves. Sounds counterintuitive and I don't feel tempted to try it out but that was what I remember he said in one of his videos.
