I ripped out all but the bell pepper plants and Ichiban plants. I won't have much free time on the weekends coming up so I got a head start.

I think I had some cross pollination with all the different peppers I had growing. This should be a bell pepper but it looks more like a chile.



Alot of my bell and hot peppers didn't ripen. I tried putting them in a paper bag but that didn't work, any ideas?

I don't think there is any way to get peppers to ripen off the vine. You might try uprooting the entire plant and hanging it/them in a sheltered place. My bell peppers did not do well this year, only a few flowered early and right now I have a bunch of tiny bells on the plants. But my hot banana peppers did great, so that is what I froze, yesterday.
