The Technique

Although the typical growing season runs from June to October, green bell peppers are available from the market all throughout the year. Look for mid-size vegetables with blemish free, smooth outer skin when choosing them for purchase. Once home, immediately rinse the vegetables under cool water & allow them to dry before storing in the refrigerator. Place them in a plastic bag that is twisted loosely. If you plan to grow your own plants, sow seeds now in full sun for a summer crop that will be ready for picking in approximately 75 days. Expect each plant to yield 30 peppers or so & add a stake to support it as the vegetables can be taxing on the plant.
