So so. Lg plant few peppers


Tried these 2 years in a row and very few peppers grew. I'm going to try them one more year so reordering seeds, I'd like to give him a chance just in case the seeds I received were not good. Other peppers I've planted have done well. I'm also ordering many new varieties from seed savers this year
