green pepper --> red pepper

how long before a green pepper will turn to a red pepper? the suspense is
killing me (not to mention it is becoming more difficult to restrain myself
from 'picking' the green peppers).. Thanks

My banana peppers take about 2 weeks to turn red after they are fully
grown.  Of course the time depends on the type of pepper, sun exposure
and weather.  

I know it is hard not to just pick a pepper when it is green, but I
think it is worth the wait.  Of course there is a drawback to not
picking your pepper.   The plant puts all its energy into your
ripening pepper(s) and produces few new ones.
