12 secrets to growing peppers in your garden

 


Quick and easy ways to maximize your pepper harvest while maintaining healthy plants.

In gardens, peppers grow abundantly. Bell peppers aren't as fiery as other pepper kinds since they don't contain capsaicin. Raw peppers are edible, although they are more commonly used in cooked dishes.
Although peppers aren't very difficult to cultivate, there are a few ways to increase your harvest.

Follow these guidelines, and you'll have an abundance of crispy, sweet peppers to share with your loved ones this summer.

Firstly, the variety of pepper hues
While you may get peppers of many hues at your local supermarket, the two most prevalent are green and red.

Both green and red peppers come from the same plant; the difference in color is due to the fruit's maturing process. After becoming green, they'll eventually turn red if you let them stay on the plant. Red peppers, which remain on the vine for a longer period of time, are often sweeter and contain more vitamin C than their green counterparts.

Peppers come in a rainbow of colors, including purple, yellow, orange, brown, and white. You may add a lot of diversity to your recipes by planting many varieties of these distinct plants.

2) Select an appropriate location for pepper planting
Pick an area in your yard where the sun can shine all day long; peppers adore it. Avoid having them covered by tall plants like sunflowers or tomatoes, as well as trees.

Soil that drains adequately is ideal for pepper plants. You should ensure that the environment is well-drained since they dislike being wet. They thrive on sand and clay-based medium-depth soils.

Soil pH 6.0 to 7.0 is ideal for them. Invest in a pH testing kit if you are unsure about your soil's acidity level.

Mix in some fertilizer or compost and break up the soil before you plant your pepper seeds. with addition to nourishing the peppers, this will aid with drainage.

Avoid sowing peppers in areas where you have just sown potatoes, eggplants, or tomatoes. Peppers are susceptible to the same illnesses that these plants attract. You should wait at least three years before planting again in the same place since fungus and viruses can persist in soil for a few years.
