Re: Epsom Salt
Pretty Sure it was me who was telling about it....
1 Tablespoon per Gallon of water into a pump sprayer and spray the leaves of the pepper plants once a week while they are in Blossom and then again right after you start picking peppers.
IF your peppers are yellowing, Hit them with the same mix of Epsom salts and pretty much they will be green by the next day!
Your Not going to Burn Peppers with Epsom Salts, it is not a Harsh Chemical like Fertilizer is!
1 of the guys who comes into the Farm, his Wife has been MEGA DOSING ALL their Plants with Epsom salts, he has Pepper Plants that are about 4.5 feet high and Tomatoe plants that he says are pushing 6.5-7 feet tall!
He says his wife is pretty much going out each evening and using a Miracle Grow container that you use on a Garden Hose, Filling it full of Epsom Salts and Watering EVERYTHING in the Garden! His Plants are going like Mile a Minute Vine!
We will see if it has any draw backs on if over doing it produces more stem then Fruit or what, but it is not Stunting nor Burning the plants!
We found in a Commercial Catalog this spring when making orders for the Farm that you can take 4 pounds per Acre and water it in onto ALL Melons while they are producing Fruit and right before picking, it is supposed to make the Melons Sweeter!
