Agreed, Aloha. The pepper plants are gorgeous and don't miss a beat in full sun. I'm in Texas and have tested this also.

The tomatoes plants with the same name look like a regular tom plant, but the fruits are nice and have a purple-ish hue.

Both look like great plants, and those toms sound yummy! Do you know of a place where I can get the pepper plants rather than seeds? It's too late to be starting seeds inside now, me thinks. Maybe not to late? Great info. Thanks!

I don't think it's too late to start peppers, Karen. When's the hottest time of year there in MA? I'm guessing late July-August. These plants don't get overly tall anyway and if you start the seeds in April you should have a full-grown plant by the end of May or early June.

Yes, TT, that would be the hottest time here. Mostly in Aug. I may try and start peppers after all. Just a few.

Oops, Allison! Oh, well!
