I have tried to grow green peppers, even though I get a lot of peppers on the plant, they only get less than 3 inches in diameter. My garden has full sun and the soil is great, why is this?
Hardiness Zone: 6a

Pinch off your suckers inside established branches. Give your peppers full sun with no shade.
Water only the root area not the leaves. Check your soil. You may need to amend it: sand and topsoil
And perlite if clay. Potting mix if sandy or loamy.
Maintain 70-85 degrees f. during the day with a 15 degree cool off at night.
Be sure and begin with fresh seeds.
Put a couple of tablespoons of epsom salt in a spray bottle (an old window cleaner bottle will do). Fill the bottle with water, shake well, and spray the blossoms a few times a week. They love the magnesium in it. You will have beautiful peppers.
