    Hi where exactly is Juggnu farms at Pune. Would love to visit it and see how the peppers are grown. What is the kind of plant to plant and row to row distance that you maintain for proper aeration and cultivation? I suppose you do grow them using hydroponics is it not because you are using a substrate to cultivate?

  3. My dad used to grow these at SAC in the 70s when peppers were unheard of in Scotland !

      Wow Bell Peppers in 70s? Would you believe growing colored peppers in India started as late as the 90s 🙂

      Now I grow only organic herbs and am happy not to use pesticides.

      It’s gracious of you to reciprocate my call. Regards.

      Kind regards and cheers 🙂

    good day Sir. Really overjoyed to see the systematic plantation and the dedication with which you are growing these organic vegetables. Could you let me know where your farm is located in Pune? Also whether you also grow purple bell peppers and orange bell peppers at your farm.

      Hi Vidya, its so nice of you to appreciate my modest garden which I had named a farm 🙂
      You may missed the initial intro where I mentioned about giving up on growing bell-peppers mainly because they needed chemical fertilizers and insecticides.
      Sorry to disappoint you but good to know of your interest in growing veggies.
