Late & Very Late Season Peppers - Question

sidhartha0209(KY_6a)December 6, 2012

For example, a Rocoto or Datil first year here in Ky may not have time to produce any or only a very few fully ripe chiles, but after being pruned back, overwintered, and planted again the following spring every year after will then produce many chiles? Is that correct?

Thanks

Well, it certainly gives you a head start to have a mature plant to start with in the Spring.

Yes, if conditions are right you will theoretically get a bigger, earlier crop.
If conditions aren't right, you could always get a worse crop than the first year.
