Q.Bell Pepper Pruning

Zone toronto | Anonymous added on September 5, 2021 | Answered

I just read the article on pruning bell peppers. We are still about 56 weeks away from the first frost even though the temperatures will be decreasing will the peppers still grow further? As with tomato plants should I cut back all or many of the leaves coming off the main stems so as to provide more energy to the fruit itself? Thank you

You could attempt to take cuttings and grow them indoors, though! This is what I do through the winter.

Here are some articles that will help:
