I set out Bell Peppers called Sweet Reds. These plants are now loaded with green peppers. When will they actually turn red? Anybody know? The peppers are quite large and I would usually harvest at that size. Do I just keep waiting?

I'd really appreciate your input.

Thanks,
Steph

Yes Steph you'll have to keep waiting I'm afraid. The more sunshine your peppers get the quicker they'll turn red though. There's nothing nicer than home grown sweet peppers!!! Very Happy

Thanks Eileen. Patience is a virtue, right? They get lots of sunshine, so I will watch with great anticipation for the "turning of the peppers"!

Make it a great day!
Steph

It takes a good while but suddenly they will all start to turn.
