Pinterest Fallacy!

This image is floating around on Pinterest, telling people to buy peppers with 3 bumps and not 4 because they won’t have seeds. Anyone with a basic understanding of botany will know that this is a bunch of BS. Fruit cannot be male or female, “gender” in plants only applies to the flowers, and only female flowers produce fruit. Sometimes you get a pepper with lots of seeds, sometimes you only get a few. These bumps have nothing to do with seed amount, sweetness, or tenderness. Stop the madness.
