Bell peppers i’m growing are still small (1 and half to 2 inches only). one is starting to turn red. can it be picked or should i
leave it to grow even though its already changed colour? Do the peppers continue to grow in size after they start turning red? Or could it be they are just small bell peppers?

What you are seeing is mostly normal, however, adding fertilizers high in potassium and phosphorous, and making sure not to add any more nitrogen can increase the size drastically. Generally, peppers that remain small will be more bitter, but still edible by all means
