sea level bell peppers

I'm new to gardening and as if that isn't challenging enough I live at sea level in Kona. I'm figuring a few things out, corn's a no-brainer, green beans and squash but when I started my garden, I visualized growing bell peppers because I love them so much and they're one of the most problematic so far. I'm on my third round....changing soil, changing shade, changing seed. They seem to invariably get that leaf curl condition (no bugs) and the plant and fruit is mutant and unuseable. Is anyone out there having any success growing bell peppers in Hawaii?

RE: sea level bell peppers

If you google "growing bell peppers in Hawaii", you will find an article from the college of tropical agriculture on this subject that will shed some light on it. Also if you search this site, there is a fairly lengthy article on it also from members. You are not in a good location for bell peppers, but should be able to raise them in the wintertime.
