Red Bell Pepper
Bell pepper, also known as sweet pepper or a pepper (in the UK) and capsicum (in Australia and New Zealand), is a cultivar group of the species Capsicum annuum (chili pepper). Cultivars of the plant produce fruits in different colors, including red, yellow, orange and green. Bell peppers are sometimes grouped with less pungent pepper varieties as "sweet peppers". Peppers are native to Mexico, Central America and northern South America. Pepper seeds were later carried to Spain in 1493 and from there spread to other European, African and Asian countries. Today, China is the world's largest pepper producer in the world, followed by Mexico.
Growing peppers of any type, requires a great deal of sunlight. Plant in a full-sun locatin in your garden.Peppers have very similar growing requirements as tomatoes, but are even less accepting of cold.Most pepper plants will require some support to help protect it from wind. I've found it best to insert a stake (stick, post, whatever you have to use) when I transplant the plants in the garden. Then, when the plant starts to bear fruit, I lightly tie the central stalk to the stake for support.Gardening Tip for Growing Peppers - If you wait until the pepper plant needs the support to insert your stake in the ground nearby, you will cause damage to the growing pepper plant's tender root system. Instead, insert the stake when transplanting, before the plant's root system has formed.Do NOT try growing peppers in a location that had peppers or other plants from the same family in it the gardening season before (such as tomatoes, eggplant, etc.).
