Q.Winter/Indoor Habanero Peppers

Zone Ontario Canada | shakey69 added on March 11, 2015 | Answered

I brought my pepper plant indoors for the winter (Canada)and had hundreds of flowers all winter but no peppers. One plant, does it need pollination or is it just not hot enough or not enough sun, etc. Thanks.

The Habanero prefers bright light and a warm area to thrive in. However, in your case, I think that it just needs a little help pollinating. Habaneros are self pollinating which means the pollen from the stamen can pollinate the pistle of the same flower. You can facilitate the pollination process by gently shaking the plant to disperse the pollen. Or you can transfer pollen from one flower to the next with a watercolor brush.
