Sadly, but specifically, this pepper was All for Not Too Much. My experience:
Easy plant, produced OK, the pepper itself was thin walled, simple, thus not so flavorful.
May have been the Wind this summer in Central TX that disturbed the Pepper Plant.

Plants were very productive, especially the ones I over-wintered outdoors. I had three separate harvests. Peppers were tasty. Plants were low maintenance.
