This is the most well known and favored of the pepper varieties. This variety prefers warmer temperatures and soils to grow in but still requires consistent moisture to produce the best germination. The sow method for this variety like most others is transplanting once seeds have germinated. The plant is fully mature at roughly 75 days. Pick fruit only once it has reached full size to encourage a higher crop yield.
