Why is my pepper plant flowering but not producing peppers?
The most common reasons for bell pepper plants flowering but not fruiting are a lack of pollination, incorrect growing temperatures, or poor soil conditions. A lack of sunlight and incorrect watering also play a role in bell pepper’s ability to produce fruit.
Do bell peppers need to be pollinated by bees?
Peppers are self-fertilizing and can be pollinated by the wind as they have both male and female parts (the anther and stigma) in the same flower, so bees are not necessary for pollination.
Do I have to hand pollinate peppers?
Pollination of Peppers
Stress may be due to a lack of pollinators or overly high temperatures. During these stressful times, you may need to hand pollinate your pepper plants. Although time consuming, hand-pollinating peppers is simple and sometimes necessary if you desire a good fruit set.
