Growing Japanese sweet peppers in organic farming. This time, I will attend to Japanese pepper plant care. About 10 days have passed since planting the sweet green peppers, and already the buds have started to swell.
The seedling of sweet green peppers was planted in late April.
While the pepper plant is young, the focus is on promoting the growth of the plant itself, so early flowers and fruits are removed. If the early-developed sweet green peppers are left on the plant until they reach harvestable size, nutrients will be drawn more towards the fruits than the plant itself.
Replace temporary stake with thicker stake for support the sweet green pepper. Stake size：1.6cm (0.63 inch) in diameter, 150cm (4.9 feet) in length.
To set up the stake, first, push the stake into the ground with both hands. (Until the stakes reach their stopping point.)
Then, use a hammer to drive the stake in an additional 10cm (4 inch). A point to note is not to drive the stake in too deeply. If you drive it in too deeply, it might become difficult to remove when cleaning up.
Finally, tie the stems to the stake with twine to complete the staking setup.
