Bell peppers

Post  Millenia on 8/28/2013, 2:40 pm

I have a bell pepper question. (I just picked my first yellow bell pepper, btw. Yay me!) I planted 3 plants at the same time, one green, one yellow, and one red.

My green one is the most vigorous and fruited early on with several nice looking bell peppers, but a gigantic tomato worm ate almost the entire plant because I'm apparently as blind as a bat. After removing the worm and spraying with spinosad, it put back out and is still the biggest plant. Except now the new peppers aren't bell shaped. They are shaped like banana peppers. I haven't counted how many are on it but I saw at least 3 and they all look alike. They look like those bags of colorful sweet peppers you see in the grocery store (without the color.)

Any idea why? Is it because it's the second crop?

I'm stumped. As long as you just want peppers for flavor and not stuffing, then the taste is the main thing. Good luck and let us know.

If the fruits are crooked or looking deformed, it MAY have been a poor pollination issue. Are you seeing bees?

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
