I've never been able to grow a bell pepper larger than than about 2 inches diameter. What could be up ?
Thank Y'all. 😎😎😎

I gave up trying to grow a real bell pepper years ago. They never end up looking like the grocery store peppers - they never even ripen. Now I grow smaller non-bell sweet peppers: Yummy's, mini-bell peppers, Sweet Banana peppers...

My favorite tomato and pepper place is TotallyTomato.com

Try more P and K than N in the soil. Something like 2-6-6. Too much N gives you large plants and small fruits. Foliar spraying (kelp meal for example) could also help in the short term.
