abundance across South America, Central America, and Mexico.

Harvest Sweet peppers when they reach the preferred size or color. If you
like green peppers, go ahead and pick them at any time. The more you
pick, the more the plant will set. They will not reach their full color until fully
ripe. If you prefer ripe peppers, you will have to wait longer and you will
get fewer peppers, which is why they cost so much more in the store.
Cutting is the best method of harvesting peppers. You can snap the stem
off the plant, but very often you'll take the whole branch with you.
All peppers plants for sale, not just a red pepper plant, like soil to
be warm. Growing red bell peppers in soil that is about 65 – 75
degrees F. is optimal. In the spring, try using clear plastic to heat
the soil up before you plant your red pepper plants outside. Once
the soil reaches the optimal temperature, add mulch to keep the
temperature of the soil from heating up too much in hot weather.
Plant natural barriers like garlic, Penny royal and marigolds and
keep the pests put of your garden all season.
Fertilize regularly. Growing red bell peppers need lots of
phosphorus, magnesium and calcium. Regular feeding will make
sure that all of these nutrients are there. Peppers like to eat.
Feed pepper plants about once a month. Give Andy's Organc
Plant Food and Tea
Water regularly. Watering your plants is very important.
Inconsistent watering can damage the health and the ability of a
red pepper plant to produce and ripen fruit. When you are
growing red bell peppers, make sure that the ground stays moist
all the time.
The mystery of how to grow red peppers is not really a mystery
at all. The secret to how to grow red peppers is patience more
than anything. If you find that you are unable to resist the tasty
green fruit on the plant but you would still like to get red peppers,
harvest the younger peppers and let the older pepper mature to
their tasty red goodness.
The popular green and red bell pepper plants for sale that we see
in supermarkets are actually the same thing; the red peppers
have just been allowed to mature on the plant longer, changing
color and also gaining a higher content of Vitamin C.
Red and Green Pepper Are They The Same?
1. Find a good location to plant your new Pepper Plants
outside and prepare the soil.
2. Bell peppers need lots of nitrogen, potassium and
phosphorus. The area should be well-drained and receive lots of
sun. Prepare the soil by adding good topsoil, compost and rotted
manure. You want a pH level around 7.0 (neutral).
3. Rake the soil, removing large rocks and level it out as you go.
4. Plant 18 - 24 inches apart. Dig a small hole, about 2 inches deep.
5. Gently but firmly grasp the Pepper Plant by the base of the stem
and lift it out (dirt and all) from the container. Place the root base
of the Pepper Plant (with dirt still around it) into the hole. Add about
1 inch of water into the hole, and fill in with soil, patting firmly
around the base of the pepper plant, tamping it securely into the
6. Surround each plant with mulch to retain moisture - warmth.
7. To improve the quality of your peppers, place a small amount of
fertilizer around each plant early in the growing season. Place the
fertilizer about 4 inches from the stem and add water to work it into
8. When watering your plants, you want to keep a consistent
moistness to the soil, but do not allow it to get soggy during the
growing season. If the plants do not get enough water, the Bell
Peppers will have a bitter taste. If you use a black plastic mulch,
you will need to water the plants more frequently.
9. As the plants grow and develop, switch from mulch to a fertilizer
that is high in phosphorous and potassium. Avoid giving the plant
too much nitrogen as this can results in a great bushy plant, but
few peppers will develop.
