Q: Hello, I love your site and I am looking forward to learning as much as I can about peppers. I am growing peppers know and I was wondering how long to you have to pick peppers once they turn red. Thank.

A: Hello Pepper Lover:
That depends on the variety. But all chiles start to dehydrate after they turn red, so don’t wait more than a few days unless you plan to harvest dried red pods.
