This will be my third year for growing this pepper. Everyone who has tasted this pepper loves it. Very productive, too. Because I love stuffed peppers so much, this will always have a place in my garden.
It seems to grow at the same rate as the rest of the peppers that I grow. You might try a little fish fertilizer or something similar as a kick in the pants to get it going. Hang in there. Your patience will be well rewarded.
I have been treating this plant like the other peppers and it is growing 1/3 compare to the others.
Maybe it is the seed's source. I got mine from Baker Creek, do you remember where you bought your seeds?
Mine also came from Baker Creek. And it was seed left over from last year. Gardening is not an exact science and usually involves a certain amount of luck. Some things can't always be explained. Just do whatever you think might help. But a little extra feeding might do the trick. And I want to emphasize the word "little".
