What are the pros? Delicious, big, forgiving

What are the cons? Needs extra support


We only get 5-6 hours of full sun per day in our yard, but these peppers didn't care. They did take a long time to ripen and didn't set a ton of fruit (though I planted a lot of plants, so it didn't matter). The peppers spent most of the summer green, to the point where I'd given up hope. Then the temp dropped, we left on vacation, and we came back to a bed full of brightly colored red (and orange) peppers! They are large, thick-walled, blocky, and delicious eaten raw or cooked into dishes--everything a bell pepper should be. So plant these even if your sun situation isn't ideal, and don't lose hope. We were harvesting peppers for most of September, and even into October in some cases!
