I have two Tabasco pepper plants that are seemingly doing well. They both have thick main stems and are almost waist high, but no blooms yet. Are they late bloomers? Anyone have experience with them? My other pepper plants all have peppers.

All I could say is maybe too much nitrogen fertilizer or maybe if you have them too shaded. They might just need a little more time before they kick in.

They have direct sun at least 10 hours a day right now.

I agree. Too much nitrogen.

Well, I finally got some blooms with the cooler weather and it looks like some peppers are starting to bud.

Mine are loaded, I would guess 100 peppers each. But they are all yellow, they have been yellow for two months I guess, but suppose to be red before I pick them. My first year with Tobasco's...

Looks like mine will be loaded soon. The plants themselves are huge and I have a bunch of blooms -still not sure what took so long. If it was too much nitrogen, seems like they would not have formed at all. To coincide with the cooler temps is quite noticeable, though, growing prolifically in Louisiana suggests that this would not be a issue

In Louisiana the peppers slow down a lot in the heat of summer and pick back up and start bearing again in the fall when it gets cooler.
