This is round 2 on the Colossal green peeper Johns 500 gram plus seed from 2015 If my memory is right? This is growing in the same 8 foot bed "The Worm" is in 301 Dairy Do compost.This is year #2 on the 301.It grew my sugar snap peas this past spring.Seems to be fruit producing mix for veggies.I just culled all the fruit I could still dozens more & will have to pick off with tweeezers.

Still producing mega blossoms I have been removing suckers totally.However now I might be in the final 10 day push I will do the opposite of what most would think.I will apply what Joe Ailts St Croix Growers check out their website.His theory if the plant still growing it keeps sending a hormone to keep trucking.So I will cut off the little megas but let the new leafs develop. This plant is pretty big & can share the energy,may even give me a longer grow time.I cant wait to grow my Domingo seed line in 2021.I think it will be awesome seed line.Thanks to PorkChop & applesauce ALICE!
