David, tonight I decided to freeze all my peppers. Some I chopped in large chunks for my Chinese stir fries and Italian sausage/spaghetti dish. Diced a gallon freezer bag full for chili and sloppy joes. Eight of the largest bell peppers I just halved, to use for stuffed peppers. All in all I did o.k.  Just wasn't happy that they didn't have time to turn red.

all my bell peppers were a flop! they didn't have any size at all, and the taste was not great. going plant a hybrid next year, I wasn't going to plant any next year, but I changed my mind. looking for a good bell still going to plant Jimmy Nardello as my main pepper crop.

Has anyone ever saved seeds from organic STORE BOUGHT Bell Peppers?  Do they germinate?

I saved some seed from some from a farmers market. they were organically grown but I don't know if they were open pollinated or not. they germinated just fine. the plants looked ok but I transplanted them in a pot. and they didn't do very well. so this year going to put them in the ground. I have been thinking about putting them in with the flowers. but they won't be my main pepper crop. I still have some seed it's the 2nd year for them I will share.Smile

Today I started 4 seeds Red Bell Pepper and 4 Yellow Bell Pepper. I will plant more of them later in April. I am hoping I can grow a couple indoors in large pots so in mid-June I can transplant those 2 and hopefully they will have flowers on them.

My Bell Peppers didn't get many peppers on them. I need to start the peppers earlier so they have blossoms on them when I plant them in the gardens. I have only harvested 6 peppers.  There are several reds ripening, a couple yellow and one green.

Next year I would like to grow one plant in a container. When the cold temps arrive I could bring it inside the house, harvest the peppers that are on it. Then cut it back severely, keep it growing all Winter and then plant it outside again the following Spring. I have seen people do this on YouTube with much success.  I wonder if I could try transplanting one of my plants that are in the gardens. Root pruning & to pruning severely. Maybe I will give it a try.  ConfusedLaughHave any of you wintered pepper plants indoors?

I don't do it, the only plants I bring in is some flowers. to do that I take them out of their pots wash all the dirt off and clean them good to elevate all the bugs and repot them in  a clean pot and potting soil for the winter. right now the bell peppers and jimmy nardellos are still putting on fruit. but I don't want to over winter any. if I did it would be the ghost pepper, don't ask me why I really don't know. next years garden will have 2 or 3 of the hot ones. Ray on the praxxus55712 channel has a ghost pepper he has raised for 4 years. I think he said this is the last year for it but is saving some seed.  happy growingLaugh

I bet your home smells delish!  Fall is in the air. 

I also watch Ray's channel.  That is where I got the idea of wintering peppers indoors.
