Q.green bell peppers are growing, but they are white and black!

Zone Cincinnati OH | gianne23 added on July 6, 2014 | Answered

I purchased some green bell pepper starter plants. Fruit is starting to grow on the plant, but on one plant the fruit came in green then turned black. On another plant, the fruit came in white and is still white (and growing bigger!) I’ve never seen this before – is there something that can cause this, or did I just happen to get (not green) bell pepper plants? Sorry the image is sideways – but you can see the fruit…

Sounds like you got some interesting varieties mixed in there. Sweet peppers can come in a rainbow of colors besides green. This article will give you some more information: http://www.hort.purdue.edu/ext/ppep.html
