    My first year with this pepper. It has been in a pot and has done very well. The colors are a pleasant addition to the table. The fruits are small (3 inches), but very numerous. I am picking 3-4 peppers a week from one plant and there are still many more to come. I have not added fertilizer; just good composted soil. I would grow this pepper again.
