Red bell pepper question
I just recently harvested my first red bell pepper and was looking forward to eating and enjoying it. It was smaller than the ones I'm used to getting at the store, but it was bright red. When I cut it open, I noticed that the seeds were very tiny and black. I was dicing it to put in a recipe, and decided to taste a bit and was very surprised at how bitter and horrible it was. No sweetness whatsoever! The plant is producing more peppers. Is there something that I can do to prevent more peppers like this?
Make sure the plants are getting enough moisture and nutrients. A 5-5-5 fertilizer will help. No more than 8-8-8.
