Bell Pepper Plants
Q.

Should bell pepper buds be thinned?

Zone Dutchess County, NY | Meterman1966 added on August 10, 2015 | Answered

My Lady bell pepper plants are doing very well. I have them planted in a pot and there are about 6 full size peppers almost ready to be picked. There are new buds appearing on the plants - lots of them! I was wondering if I should pick some of these buds off so the remaining buds can do better.

No, no need to remove flowers.
An average yield per plant can be up to 12 peppers.
