The Q&A Archives: Bell Peppers

Question: What is the average length it takes for bell peppers to mature & turn red, yellow, etc... I have several big peppers but not yet turning colors.


Answer: It usually takes 70-75 days for sweet peppers to ripen. Although the weather is cooling off, I'd give the peppers a few more weeks; if they don't color up by then, you can harvest and set them on a kitchen counter. They should change color in a few days.
