Flowers on Peppers - Knowledgebase Question

Brookfield, CT
Question by lhgiii

I planted indoors this spring, Habanero, Cayenne, Jalapeno, Tabasco, Cherry, Carribean Red, and Green Bell. They were hardened off for a couple of weeks and were set out in the garden on May 22. The plants range from 4 to 8 inches tall right now and already have flowers on them. Is this normal? Are they getting ready to produce fruit already?

Yes, indeed! Your pepper plants are getting ready to set fruit! Size of plant is not always an indication of maturity, and even short, sturdy plants can develop flowers and set fruit. Congratulations on your exceptionally green thumb!
