Question: Do I prune chile plants? I'm growing Habanero's, super chile, red savina habaneros, cayenne and a few others and was wondering if there are suckers on chile plants. I know there are suckers on tomato plants but not sure about the pruning of chile plants.
Answer: You are in luck! Gardeners do not need to prune chile pepper plants. They do not sucker the way some tomatoes do, and in fact pruning the tips will delay flowering and pepper production. Enjoy your crop!
