Ive seen other images of peoples Thai sun peppers and they look MUCH thicker than mine and mine aren't getting thicker at the base, i was wondering if i should pick off all the peppers, which might encourage growth, or maybe i should cut it back some to make it more bushy? any ideas?

Thanks! and yeah, i eat these little fireballs before hot food challenges, i will be taking the quaker steak and lube atomic wing challenge tomorrow actually! Yours looks like a thai sun like mine.

RE: Thai sun peppers

The peppers in the first pic look nicely bushy to me, so I wouldn't worry about trying to force them bushier. The plants in the second pic look too big to be Thai Sun... those look like big pots and I thought Thai Sun was a dwarf, no more than about 10" tall. I grew some from Pepper Joe last winter and they were short and loaded with lots of tiny but hot peppers (that's a 6" pot they are in):

RE: Thai sun peppers

I just had them in a 4 inch pot!!! lol

I had to just give them a #1 pot, as I have them in a area that gets about 10 hours of full sun. If they were in a smaller pot I could never keep up with watering.

Very nice plants guys!!
