What are the pros? Easy, Fast, Decorative
What are the cons? nothing
I started these indoors in late June (late in the season, I know) and put TWO plants outdoors in August. I think I used 2 gallon pots, but they might have been 3. I staked the stem with a bamboo stake to protect it from wind.
These grew quick, though the plant is supposed to be smaller than normal pepper plants. They flowered beautifully and I got about 3 dozen full size green peppers and about 2 dozen more small peppers before first frost in mid-October. I ate all of them before they turned red. Didn't experience any of the legendary spicy peppers in my mix, but I got 1 pepper that had a subtle bite to it.
Overall these were super easy, and I will try them again next year when I will have a chance to start earlier in the season.
