Thanks for the tips Sojerd, Carloyn. I read them in the morning and by the time I get to the pepper plant after pruning my herbs, I thought that I am supposed to prune it also and I did just that. Just a moment ago, I read the comments again and .... oops!

I hope no damage is done here.

I removed all the flowers and was surprised that some fruits were already forming, those were removed too.

Carolyn, according to the packaging, it says 65 to 85 days to harvest which I guess that is when the fruits are ready for the picking.

I guess all I can do now is sit tight and wait.

Oh, Don't fret too much, Plants are really forgiving, they tend to grow right back. It will just take a little longer to get the fruit.

Well KK-- that was a bit shocking to see, but I reckon that it will be alright. Sitting tight is about all you can do at this point. Don't give up.
Like Carolyn said, plants can be forgiving and after such an action it may take longer before you get sopmething to harvest, but I feel confident that you will get some later on in the season.
Good luck, mate.
