Answer: I'm glad we figured your pepper problem out. Yes, you can remove those "shocked" leaves as soon as new leaves are growing. The "shocked" leaves will never recover. Fertilize the plants while still indoors with a seaweed mix or a diluted complete fertilizer such as Miracle Gro once every week or so. after that fertilize when you set them out with compost and/or granular organic fertilizer and them again at first flowering.
