Left out overnight and forgot!

I've been slowly hardening off this plant (Hungarian pumpkin pepper) for the past four days gradually and intended to put it out for about an hour last night with calm winds but I forgot to bring him in! I got up this morning to bring him in before the morning direct sun hit it.
Looks okay. It only got down to 65 overnight.

Thanks! I believe this one is very near hardened. I want to give it a couple more days of partial shade, sun, then maybe an other overnighter than get him into a container by end of next week.

Sounds like a good plan.

FWIW, I hardened off a set of super hots in 4 days last month, then a week later set out 8 super sweets and never brought them back in. All are thriving. Temps 70 - 95 and up.

This one can proly go out now but a couple more days wouldn't hurt.
It's going into a 10 gallon container.
I hear they get pretty good size with lots of small pumpkin size pods!

Give me a break ! So far this season our night lows have been under 57F. And many many nights in high 40s.
