The sweet heat peppers in 2nd year certainly are keeping up with their reputation of bearing fruit first! Even if they look like Bonsai pepper plants. Yep, after pruning just 8 weeks ago the peppers are popping out. Our plants at Alejandro are much smaller due to the pruning but these sweet heat peppers are healthy with strong trunks and mature enough to blossom and produce.
It was unintentional to create small Bonsai peppers plants. In our first year we assumed that these plants would grow out again before baring fruit. We learned that these plants are mature enough to bare fruit even with just a few branches. It will be fun to see how these Sweet heats yield this year.
