Green Pepper

Anonymous added on July 28, 2011 | Answered

In all of my green peppers, no matter the variety, I am having thin spots show up that are forcing me to harvest before the peppers have a chance to mature and develop thick walls and change to the colors they are to be. The pepper plants are loaded with peppers but very tightly together. Is there a way to check this condition and get whole peppers?

Are the thin spots faded? If this is the case, then the peppers are getting sun scald. Provide some shade for them from the sunlight to help stop this.

I would suggest limiting each plant to only 6 or 7 fruitd and ensure a plentiful supply of water and a good tomato liquid feed weekly ( high potash)
