Answer: Most peppers taste best when allowed to fully mature before harvesting, however, early in the season it's best to harvest peppers before they ripen to encourage the plant to keep bearing. A mature fruit can signal a plant to stop production. Harvest now and you're sure to get lots of peppers all season. It's best to cut the peppers from the plant rather than pulling them so you don't damage the plant.
