Why is my yellow capsicum plant dying?
Capsicum is susceptible to many diseases and insect infections. Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other infections. Spray appropriate medicines as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted.
Why is my yellow capsicum plant not growing?
The soil around yellow capsicum has to be maintained in loose friable condition without allowing formation of crust, only then the plant will grow properly. Also No weeds should be allowed to grow near capsicum plants.
Why am I getting diseased fruits?
Blossom-end rot is a disease that appears as a brown dead patch at the base of the fruit. Help to prevent it by never allowing the potting soil in containers to dry out.
All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended
Bell pepper helps to lower homocysteine levels and reduces the risk of heart disease considerably.
Bell peppers are 94% water, 5% carbohydrates, and negligible fat and protein. Red capsicum is loaded with Vitamins A, B6, C and K, carotenoids, dietary fibre and folate
1.The coloured bell pepper is the only member of the genus Capsicum (chilies) that does not produce capsaicin, a lipophilic chemical that can cause a strong burning sensation when it comes in contact with mucous membranes.
2.A large pepper can provide upto 300% of your daily requirement of Vitamin C which is three times more than an orange.
The fruits become ready for harvesting 45 to 50 days after transplanting. Harvesting can be done once a week for three to four months. Before the fruits ripen they are usually green and mild in flavour. They have a sweeter flavour when they are fully ripe with shiny yellow colour.
While picking, the fruits should be lifted gently after plant, without causing injury or breakage of the stem. Use scissors when harvesting the yellow capsicum. Do not pull the fruits away from the stems, as this may cause damage and provide an entry point for diseases.
Red or sandy loam soil with pH of 5.5 to 6.8 is ideal. Soil should be fine, loose and well aerated for successful crop growth.
Capsicum roots are very sensitive to too dry or too wet conditions. Soil must be kept moderately moist. Potted plants must be watered daily.
