Early Sunsation?

Pepper, bell    None Given

How tall will my early sunsation pepper plant become? Since I've transplanted it three weeks ago, it has only grow a few inches at most. The peppers are looking outstanding though.

Nicole Castle Brookus commented,
It looks like the plant has been watered so vigorously, soil has splashed up on it. Especially here in the hot & humid South, ground contact can be a vector for several fungal diseases of peppers. I recommend either modifying your watering method (drip and soaker irrigation is great) or covering the soil around the plant with coarse mulch to help prevent the splashing.

The plant looks fine to me. I would pick those peppers and eat them to let the plant spend more energy on growth instead of fruit production right now.

That's a really great looking pepper plant you have there. Yum. A quick search around the web tells me that Early Sunsation will reach 2 to 3 ft iin height. I would say that the growth you are seeing is pretty normal. You don't say where you are but here in NJ, my peppers are growing slowly as the weather is quite changeable and there are some hot days but also a lot of cool days. Peppers love heat.
