"Late Jalapenos ~
The temperature is certainly a major
Part of the equation,
But decreasing hours of sunlight
And intensity also affect Pepper's Production.
It would be much simpler to dig
Up Pepper, move her
Inside, and put her under artificial spot lights.
Interestingly, at least to me,
Is how different varieties tolerate
The cool/cold weather. The Lemon Drops (_C baccatuum_),
Chocolate labs, Limon, Pimento De Cheiro ( _C chinense_),
And Fish (_C annuum_)
Hold their leaves
And maintain marginal pepper production
Up until the final freeze.
The Corno Di Toro, Almapaprika, (C annuum_),
Trinidad Seasoning, (_C chinense_),
And most of the others start
Dropping their leaves as soon as the weather
And only ripens the peppers
