Mine are the same size. But I feel like they aren't getting bigger. Should I just harvest already? Lol🙃😁

@quantumrobin I picked one of mine today. Maybe pick one as an experiment & leave the rest?

It's about two-fingers big now! I'm thinking of just picking it early to simulate the plant to keep making more flowers and fruits. 21 May 2021 #pepper #capsicumannuum #sweetpepper #bellpepper #gyo

Baby #bellpepper and three more buds coming. I germinated this from seeds from a grocery store bell pepper. Didn't even stratify. #sweetpepper #capsicumannuum 8 May 2021

Poor pepperbaby, blooming in the grow tent where there are no pollinators. I rubbed the pollen around with my finger, hoping I'm skilled enough to do a bug's job. #pepper #capsicumannuum #sweetpepper #bellpepper #bellpepper-flower #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyoveg 29 Apr 2021 #bestofapril

I planted dried seeds in the center of each cell, so the experiment seeds are in the corners with the dots. S = sank, F = floated. Let's see if anything interesting happens. 3 May 2020 #experiment #alwayslearning #bellpepper

Question: when soaking seeds, does it matter if they sink or float? I've heard that seeds that sank to the bottom overnight are viable and seeds that float are not. It just so happens that of these bell pepper seeds (from an ordinary grocery store pepper) that soaked overnight -- five sank and five floated. LETS DO AN EXPERIMENT! #seeds #bellpepper #experiment #alwayslearning 3 May 2020

This is interesting! I think the floaters are flatter, and therefore lighter. Just a thought.

That's interesting! We saved the seeds from store-bought bell peppers too and we just planted them all and whichever grows will grow 😂
