Out of three plants only one survived, but that was due to the hot, dry weather cooking the plants too much. The one plant that survived we had to place a tomato cage around it because it grew so big and was so loaded down with peppers. They were a little hotter than we expected, but we pressure canned them so their flavor will stand out in anything we use them for. Tons of peppers came off of that one plant so it is a really good producer.
