Summer garden

In June, Shaan, Kiran and I spent quality time planting these jalapeño plants together. It's been an enjoyable activity for us. Surprisingly, Kiran has been eating these peppers this month, and we've noticed something odd - they're not tikka (spicy) as we expected. It's pretty perplexing. There was this one incident where Kiran accidentally picked a hot one, but the rest were mild for some reason. We're baffled as to why only one was spicy while the others aren't living up to the usual jalapeño heat.
