These peppers produced a fair yield though they did not turn red - we harvested a fair amount and I was told they tasted good. The plants were shaded by the Jasper tomato plants in the same bed. Perhaps this and many rainy days contributed to the diseased peppers we had later in the season. They were maturing well and then turned mushy. See the picture. The peppers earlier in the season were healthy.

Strong seedlings from indoor germination. Transplanted in May. Compact plants with good sized fruit but yield was low. Peppers taste fine but still have not turned red in early October

Red Knight grew very compactly with 2 large thickly walled peppers each late in the season. No sign of disease. They took well over 100 days to turn red. Flavor was very good

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.
