What are the pros? Easy Care; Long Hang Time
What are the cons? Needs Support; A little Seedy
A tough plant for sure. I put in 8; 4 double planted holes. Might sound odd, but my past experience suggested I would lose half to disease/insect pressure (even the grafted variety). I am amazed at this one, as it was little care and kept producing until the first hard frost! The fruit had a very, very long hang time, so no need to pick it all at once. The fruit are smaller, but they do work perfect as small stuffers. A small pairing knife will remove the top with seeds rather neatly and the think walls allow a long cook time. Some of the issues could be solved by simply starting the plants a week or two sooner than suggested for peppers. I would also suggest pruning of top and just remove the lower branches when it gets a foot or two tall... though, even laying on the ground, the peppers resisted rotting.
