I have grown pepperonci , different kinds, but was not impressed. One they have thin wall thus little meat. Secondly, the skin was too tough. Same goes for Sh!sh!to.

just read that sprinkling the foliage when watering makes peppers hotter, so they should be watered from beneath?

In all my years of reading and talking to people, I've never heard that "advice". I'm in trouble if it is true because that is how I water the main garden and I don't eat hot peppers knowingly

I don't think that getting the foliage wet has anything to do with the heat of the pepper. Peppers are hotter when grown in hot and dry conditions. That is what I have read and that has been my experience in my many years or growing peppers.

I think maturity of the plant has a bearing on the hotness of peppers to some degree.
And hot dry weather.
Poblanos I picked in August were as hot or hotter than any jalapeno I have ever had.

I have also read where watering makes them hotter.
I think it is hog wash.
