The Q&A Archives: Bell Peppers

Question: I recently planted 4 bell pepper plants , 1 red , 1 yellow and 2 green . They are doing great but all the peppers have turned purple ? Please help !

Answer: The leaves of pepper plants can turn purple if they are exposed to cold or because of a phosphorous deficiency in the soil. Either way, it won't hurt your plants. If you feed with a high phosphorous fertilizer the color should change to green. Best wishes with your pepper plants.
