Grew well from transplants, no disease, tasty peppers but a very small yield so far. Peppers did not mature as quickly as stated in the description.

This variety rotted on the stem and dropped. There was no leaf or insect damage. Possibly the\r\nweather conditions with very heavy rain was the cause.
