What are the pros? easy to grow, tasty, pretty
What are the cons? sunscald easily, slow to ripen
Overall this is a great pepper. Here in Missouri in 2016, we are having strange summer weather. Even a gardening expert at my local nursery says that St. Louis has a challenging climate for growing vegetables, due to very wet springs and very hot summers. we had the hottest June on record, then in early July, we had a patch of cool wet weather. My first few peppers had sunscald. Each plant, so far (today is July 22) has produced about 2-8 peppers. They take a long while to ripen. Because of the sunscald, and because I heard peppers produce more if they are picked often, I went ahead and harvested them all today, so I will have mostly green peppers, which is fine. I would like to be able to have more of them red, but wanted to harvest them while they were still intact, and not let them go to waste due to the brown spots caused by the excessive heat. I am a newbie at gardening. Perhaps I will invest in a shade cloth for next year.
