Top the chiliplantor early!

I usually top off many of my C. annuum cultivars to branches better and not be so long. My experience is that if you don't, then it will be more a long stem with a branched Crown at the top.

Here's a Hot Apple (other names, Hungarian Apple Pepper” and ” Alma paprika) as I peaked quite early, and one that is not topped. You can see a clear difference.

How do you do? Do you top some chiliplantor.

    Neat! Would be nice to see the difference this fall also. You are quite right that tops. I wound my annuum sometime in February highs not because then there is a risk of delaying the harvest.

      All kinds of chili do not have topped it all depends on what type it is.
      and how it grows. Some hot chilisorter grows more compact and do not usually need to be topped. The chilisorter who want to run off on the height I usually top when they are about. 20 cm high by cutting them down to half, I cut a small piece of a bladpar. It's good to know that chiliplantor that topped develops flowers later so the fruit will come later on these topped plants.
