What are the pros? Tasty, good grower & producer
What are the cons? Just takes time to mature
This is a very tasty pepper that grows well, is a strong plant 3’ , bushy and full of peppers. I use it fresh, or dried love the flavor, & is a repeater. I test at least every few years but more often if I’ve made changes. I shoot for a ph of 6.5-6.8. I keep them well fed in vegetative stage with a fairly balanced or a higher nitrogen feed. Once the plants are in the ground & approaching time to flower, I use a mix w/ a bit lower nitrogen & higher phosphorous & potassium. I try to stay away from urea based nitrogen - it takes longer to work as it needs good soil activity to become available, but with quicker acting nitrate nitrogen, you want to make sure to follow directions so you don’t burn your plants. If tests indicate a need to raise ph, I use dolomite-limestone the prior fall & it will provide critical calcium and magnesium. If ph is fine, I use a calcium/magnesium supplement & Epsom salts around the plant or as foliar spray. Know your soil - fall testing is important.
