Red and Orange Bell Peppers

Anonymous added on August 9, 2011 | Answered

We planted red and orange bell peppers this year for the first time. They are getting large and not yet turning red and orange. If we pick them when they're still green, will they still ripen if we set them in the window where they get sun?

Once a pepper is picked, it will stop ripening, so picking them green will not work.
