Well it is definitely growing. We have lots of little green tomatoes and the peppers keep getting bigger. In fact, Philip accidentally knocked a pepper off of the plant and so we gave it a try. I spat my bite out and Mike ate his and was tearing up. They are not even red yet which is when they are supposed to get hot. However, Mike did try it again on some enchilladas and liked it very much. That is a good thing too since we noticed there are a lot of new blossoms sprouting.
