    I'm not sure that's really enough. Ideally they want to be outside in a warm, sunny and sheltered position, preferably in a green house. Not always possible though I know.

    Ah, that's your problem ~ it's not light enough, and they don't have enough room. They need full sun (daylight) all day. My peppers were sown in Feb in the greenhouse and are only now ripening.
    They are in large pots, at least 6" diameter

    As they don't have ideal conditions and are most unlikely to fruit now, why don't you pot one up and bin the rest. Concentrate on treating that one plant really well and you might be surprised
