How to sow
Just like red and green varieties, yellow bell peppers too come packed with their own set of health-giving properties. Not just beautiful and happy to look at, the yellow capsicum is distinct in taste and the benefits it can endow you with. A fantastic way of taking in the much-needed dose of iron and protein in sufficient quantity. Also a potent source of antioxidants like Vitamin C and Vitamin E along with the fat-soluble agent Vitamin A. It does contain Vitamin B6 and potassium too. The presence of all these nutrients gives yellow capsicum its anti-inflammation and even anti-cancer properties. But what actually sets the yellow ones apart from other bell peppers is the presence of lutein and zeaxanthin carotenoids in abundance. Where cooking techniques are concerned, they are not much different from those recommended for other bell peppers. You can grill, roast, steam, saute and stuff these ones too. But take care not to overcook them and destroy the essential nutrients.
Growing guide for Capsicum Yellow Seeds

Planting instructions

Start planting seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the end of spring and before it starts to get warm. Keep the seeds warm for germination.

Sow three capsicum seeds in a pot, and thin out the weakest seedling after the seeds have sprouted. Let the remaining two seeds grow as one plant so that the peppers remain protected from excessive sunlight.

A week before transplanting, introduce fertilizer or aged compost in your garden soil.

Transplant seedlings outdoors when frost is no longer a threat. Sow them 18 to 24 inches apart (but keep paired plants in close proximity.)

Put two or three match sticks in the hollow with each plant, along with a teaspoon of fertilizer. The match sticks provide sulfur to the plants.

Growing Requirements

watering

Water one to two litres per week, but remember peppers are extremely heat sensitive.

pests

Most peppers are susceptible to the following pests - Aphids, Flea Beetles, Cucumber Mosaic Virus. Symptoms might include marginal foliar burning, yellowing, and browning of leaves, browning of roots and no growth or the development of black sooty mould, which can occur on the undersides of leaves.

soil

Peppers grow best in loamy soil with a pH between 6.2 and 7.0, although they can tolerate slightly alkaline conditions near 7.7

spot

Capsicum grow well in the sun, so find a sunny spot to plant capsicum.

temperature

Soil should be at least 18 degree C (65 degrees F), peppers will not survive transplanting at temperatures lower than this.

how to harvest

Harvest as soon as peppers reach their full size

The longer bell peppers stay on the plant, the sweeter they get and the greater is their Vitamin C content.

Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut peppers.

Peppers can be refrigerated in plastic bags for up to 10 days after harvesting.

Wash, core out, and seed the peppers. Cut into one-half-inch strips. Steam for around ten minutes, then scatter on a baking sheet. Dry in the oven at 60 C [140 degrees F] (or the lowest possible temperature) until brittle, stirring once in a while and switching tray positions.

When the peppers are cool, place them in bags or storage containers.
