Where To Grow Pepper Plants?

The best results will always be achieved when grown under glass as pepper plants need a long, sunny season to mature. However, in a hot summer, there is no reason why they can’t be grown outside in the full sun. 

How To Grow Pepper Plants?

Sweet pepper plants can be planted directly into the soil or into pots or growing bags and may need some support from a cane as the fruits begin to swell. Chilli plants should be able to look after themselves without the need for plant supports.

During hot weather, water regularly and once the flowers start to form feed with tomato food.

When To Harvest Pepper Plants

Pick when the fruits are ripe and the skin nice and smooth. Peppers vary in colour, but many move from green to red as they ripen. Picking a few early fruits in early to mid-summer will encourage others to form.

How To Eat Pepper Plants

Sweet peppers can be stuffed, braised, roasted, scattered over pizzas, turned into soup or just eaten raw in a salad.

Pepper plant nutritional information

If you can take the heat, chillies have lots of antioxidants, and all peppers are a good source of vitamins C, A and B-6. The pepper is the only member of the Capsicum genus that doesn’t produce capsaicin; conversely, chillies contain a high percentage of this phytonutrient, which is what gives them their spicy flavour.
