Growing Thick Walled Sweet Peppers

When I first started growing peppers, they were very thin walled, so thin walled that when just picking one, my fingers would break the walls. They were also very bitter.

I remember my aunt placing matches in the holes with the roots to correct this problem. It needs to be the paper matches, since the wooden ones will mold. This really works. It also makes hot peppers even hotter by raising the acid level of the dirt only in that area and not killing surrounding plants.

Before or after they're burnt & how many per hole? Is it too late to put them in now? They're only just starting to grow & are only about 1-2 inches big? Thanks.
