Grows great in my area! I have a plant in a small 9" pot which is growing several peppers :) I harvest them one by one as they reach a size I like to keep the others growing. Another large 14" pot is doing very well with this variety and basil both sharing the space. Plant will need some kind of support once it sets fruit or they will weigh it down! I tried staking on one and have put a tomato cage on the other. Both work but next time I will immediately place a tomato cage on it.

Fruit is good! I haven't allowed any to fully ripen to yellow yet, but the green fruit is sweet with just a tiny bit of bite to it and greally great stuffed with cheese and sausage!
