Q.Red Peppers Not Turning Colors

Anonymous added on July 13, 2011 | Answered

This is our first time growing red bell peppers. They have been growing for a few months now but don’t seem to be changing color. When do they normally change colors? Do we need to pick and let them sit before they change colors?

We recommend that you wait longer for them to turn red. They can take several weeks after reaching full size before they start to turn. If you pick them, they will not ripen to red as the maturing will stop.
