Planted indoors in March, moved outside in May here in Northern Illinois. Had about a 75 % germination rate. Plants were hearty and stood up to our high winds, extreme temperatures, and drought, which made this summer absolutely a nightmare. The plants lost all their leaves twice due to the winds, but they cam back strong, with thick stems, dense leaves, and lots of peppers. I pulled the flower up until June, in order to ensure a strong flush of peppers. When they came, we got wonderful peppers. One of the best things we did with them was to make lots of creamy red pepper and tomato soup on Sundays and for guests. They were also great in salads, grilled, on pizza, or as a snack. We are preparing to can the last of them for the winter to use on Italian beef sandwiches when the weather gets cool again. Will definitely grow these again.
