What are the pros? Sweet, Large, Beautiful
What are the cons? We knew what we were in for
Well, we started these from seed during the first week of March and it wasn't until the last week of May that we could transplant them out and the last frost was the second week of June. The plants were cool tolerant down to the low 40s in the greenhouse. It was one of 3 cultivars that sprung back up after lying down with the temperatures as seedlings. At first, they were slow growing and then after the 3rd true leaf set they took off like rockets. Sunlight is a must but only upwards of 8 hours direct before sun scald is an issue. Our season is prohibitively short under 100 days if lucky. So, imagine if you will a late pepper and a short growing season. We were bound to have a few ripe ones but not the majority. The plants did super well in adapted French Intensive/Bio-Dynamic. They reached 50" tall and the majority of half-ripened fruit were over 11 inches. Flavor for fresh eating is sweet and crisp. Do not eat fresh when green and young due to bitterness. The flesh is too thin.
