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.
