My bell peppers are starting to ripen. I love having red peppers as well as the green.
What I hate, is the waiting. They stay green for so long before they start to turn red, yellow, orange, purple, or whatever color you have.
My daughter prefers the green for snacking. But, the sweetness of the fully ripe pepper is great in cooked dishes.
The white powder on my plant is Diatomaceous Earth. It’s organic and tomato horn worms and grasshoppers have been my enemy in the garden this year.
So, if you want ripe peppers and think they will never turn, just wait and wait.
And wait a little more.
They will get there.
