Many hot peppers do not need support, they are lightweight fruit. However, some varieties, like sweet bell peppers do grow heavy fruit that can put a strain on the plants’ stem. Some pepper stems can become brittle as the plant mature, in which case a cage of small trellis would be very helpful.

<![CDATA[Re: do pepper plants need suports ]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/349/do-pepper-plants-need-suports-?commentid=2017 Ditto on the use of small tomato cages. Even my lightweight hot peppers seem to benefit from having something to lean on.
