Planting Sweet and Hot Peppers close – Affect the Fruit?

Q. If you plant sweet peppers next to hot peppers will you have sweet hot peppers?

A. Plants are cross-pollinated by bees and other insects, and the thing that is affected is the seed, which produces the next generation of plants.

If you were to eat the seeds that had been cross-pollinated you may notice the heat, but the mother fruit should not be affected.
