An Overview of Green Bell Pepper
Bell peppers are the fruits of plants in the Grossum cultivar group of Capsicum annuum. Bell peppers are sometimes classified as sweet peppers with less pungent chilli varieties. In summary, peppers are usually prepared as salads, soups or stir-fries, despite being botanically a fruit—That's why they are often referred to as a vegetable from a culinary perspective.

How to sow and care for Green Bell Pepper
Green Bell Pepper Seeds can be germinated indoors quickly. Plant your bell pepper seeds in a planting tray, and then cultivate them 1/4 inch deep. It is essential to provide water, sunlight, and warmth to the seeds, and you can use a heating pad if necessary. Make sure the seeds are kept at least 20 degrees Celsius.
After germination, your bell pepper seedlings will sprout and be ready for transplanting outside one to three weeks later. Once transplanted, your bell peppers will have to acclimate to a new environment.These plants are particularly vulnerable to transplant shock. During the ten days before you plant your seedlings, expose them to the outside environment every day for short periods.
When the soil temperature reaches at least 20 degrees Celsius, your green bell peppers are ready to be transplanted. Good spacing between seedlings is 25 to 25 inches, and you should bury them in well-draining soil just deep enough to cover the root balls but not so deep that the leaves touch the top layer. The soil should be sandy or loamy that drains well and keeps the ground warm.
It is essential to water them deeply to keep them healthy.
