New Pepper Buds

The growing tips are covered with tiny peppers. It looks like 50 or 75 too many. Should I take the buds (new peppers) off? We did this to floral mums.

Thinning the peppers will result in larger peppers but overall weight of the harvest will be the same. With vegetable annuals like peppers, you are basically deciding between lots of smaller peppers or fewer larger peppers. It is a personal choice.
