Bell Peppers Fruiting Too Early?

cubadeb added on June 18, 2012 | Answered

I just planted Bell pepper seedlings about May 24th (the usual time here in Southern Ontario). Now - June 18th plants are about 15 inches tall - they already have blossoms and I even have one little pepper. . . isn't it too early? Usually I don't get peppers until mid to late July and the plants are at least twice as big as they are now. PS, we are Zone 5

Has it been warmer than usual where you are? In many places, the warmer temps, along with the milder winter, have resulted in earlier budding, flowering and fruiting of lots of plants. As long as your peppers are healthy and productive, I would not worry too much about it. In fact, it may just mean a longer growing season for you.
