Question of the Day: Do bell peppers grow on trees?
Quick Answer: No, bell peppers do not grow on trees. Bell peppers grow on bush-like plants, but people who have seen them in greenhouses could easily mistake them for trees.
Bell peppers are perennial plants that can live for over five years when protected from frost. The constant training and pruning that most greenhouse growers perform redirects growth into the plant’s stems, causing them to thicken and become woodier in appearance.
This has led many people to mistakenly believe that bell peppers grow on trees.
