The Q&A Archives: HarvestingPeppers

Question: Could you please tell me when to pick peppers (i.e. cayenne<br>and habanero).

Answer: Harvest peppers when they have turned fully red or just before the full-red stage for best flavor. The hotter the air temperature during the growing season, the more pungent the peppers should be. Also, for increased pungency, do not apply nitrogen fertilizer after fruit set. Hope this helps!
