If you can pick any pepper when it's green and if any pepper will ripen
to a different color then why would I buy a pepper that is called "red"
"yellow" etc. I guess my question is can I get more red peppers from a
"Red Bell Pepper" than I will from a
"Green Bell Pepper" that I let ripen. Part of my thinking is that if I
don't pick the peppers periodically, I won't get as many peppers as if I
did pick them periodically.
I hope this makes sense, just trying to determine the best way to get
lots of sweet peppers.
If you want a yellow, orange or purple bell pepper, you need to buy one
that will go this colour. Yellow and orange ones don't necessarily go
red, for them, they may already be what they think is "red".
Green peppers go red. But not all peppers are very good eating when in
the green stage. So if you want green, you need one that is known to be
good to eat when green.
The most important issue when selecting peppers to grow is that they
will be suitable to grow in the conditions you can give them.
Specialist seed suppliers are more likely to have something than the
generalists who just sell you well-known commercial varieties in a small
packet. These are not necessarily best for home cultivation.
